BEYONCÉ - 16 CARRIAGES Lyrics



BEYONCÉ - 16 CARRIAGES Lyrics


Sixteen carriages drivin’ away

While I watch them ride with my dreams away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all the tears I fight

Sixteen carriages drivin’ away

While I watch them ride with my dreams away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all the tears I fight


At fifteen, the innocence was gone astray

Had to leave my home at an early age

I saw Mama prayin’, I saw Daddy grind

All my tender problems, had to leave behind


It’s been umpteen summers, and I’m not in my bed

On the back of the bus and a bunk with the band

Goin’ so hard, gotta choose myself

Underpaid and overwhelmed

I might cook, clean, but still won’t fold

Still workin’ on my life, you know

Only God knows, only God knows

Only God knows


Sixteen carriages drivin’ away

While I watch them ride with my fears away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all the tears I fight

Sixteen carriages drivin’ away

While I watch them ride with my fears away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all the tears I fight


Sixteen dollars, workin’ all day

Ain’t got time to waste, I got art to make

I got love to create on this holy night

They won’t dim my light, all these years I fight


It’s been thirty-eight summers, and I’m not in my bed

On the back of the bus and a bunk with the band

Goin’ so hard, now I miss my kids

Overworked and overwhelmed

I might cook, clean, but still won’t fold

Still workin’ on my life, you know

Only God knows, only God knows

Only God knows


Sixteen carriages driving away

While I watch them ride with my fears away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all the tears I fight

Sixteen carriages driving away

While I watch them ride with my fears away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all these tears I fight


Oh, oh

Oh


At fifteen, the innocence was gone astray

Had to take care of home at an early age

I saw Mama cryin’, I saw Daddy lyin’

Had to sacrifice and leave my fears behind

The legacy, if it’s the last thing I do

You’ll remember me ’cause we got somethin’ to prove

In your memory, on a highway to truth

Still see your faces when you close your eyes


Sixteen carriages drivin’ away

While I watch them ride with my dreams away
