The Glory Goes Lyrics

Will Oldham – The Glory Goes Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Well the glory goes to those who do not seek it
Reveling in midnight clothes among the wicked
Picking scabs from off their skin and rolling holy deeply
Into the rhythm called the song that does not end

[Chorus]
You remind me of something, the song that I am
And you sing me back into myself
When I wake, when I'm sleeping
The song is a man and a woman and everything else

[Verse 2]
And my mother is a good one, as they go
She does not condone the actions that I do that she don't know
She swears nightly before resting, that I give her soul a testing
When I sing this song that does not end

[Chorus]
You remind me of something, the song that I am
And you sing me back into myself
When I wake, when I'm sleeping
The song is a man and a woman and everything else

[Bridge]
It's been years since I found it, I still go where it pounded
My ears pressed to the chest of that one woman of song
She adores me, she ignores me, and I revel on
In wonder at something so sweet and so long

[Verse 3]
I like the places where the night does not mean an end
Where smiles break free and surprise is your friend
And dancing goes on in the kitchen until dawn
To my favorite song that has no end

[Chorus]
You remind me of something, the song that I am
And you sing me back into myself
When I wake, when I'm sleeping
The song is a man and a woman and everything else
