David Crosby - Glory Lyrics




When you roam
You're traveling alone
Trying to catch each grain of sand
Slipping through your hands

And the wind
Is weathering your skin
All that's on the outside
Is breaking you in

Let me be
The oil upon your glove
Moving in the creases
Soften what's tough

(Glory) In the blink of an eye
(Glory) In a moment of weakness
(Glory) I will be your armor
(Glory) I will be your witness
(Glory) You can't lose me, no
(Glory) No, you can't lose me

And when the weight
Is layered in rounds
Like Venusian clouds
Can't find your way out

Let me be
Your glory in the sky
Circling your shadow
Cradling the light

(Glory) In the blink of an eye
(Glory) In a moment of weakness
(Glory) I will be your armor
(Glory) I will be your witness
(Glory) You can't lose me
(Glory) You can't lose me

Sleepless night, wake again
The strength of a heart isn't continuing
Let me take your worn hands
If love could lift us then I would carry them

And your shield of skin and bones
Stumbles in the sand to carry you home
Let me be a torch to bear the light
To stock the cellar for the long night

Glory, Glory
Glory, Glory
Glory, Glory
Glory, Glory
Shining glory
Glory, Glory
Glory, Glory
You are a shining glory
Glory, Glory

    LYRICS FOR GLORY

    When you roam
    You're traveling alone
    Tryin' to catch each grain of sand
    Slipping through your hands

    And the wind
    Is weathering your skin
    And all that's on the outside
    Is breaking you in

    Let me be
    The oil upon your glove
    Moving in the creases
    Soften what's tough

    (Glory) In the blink of an eye
    (Glory) In a moment of weakness
    (Glory) I will be your armor
    (Glory) I will be your witness
    (Glory) You can't lose me, no
    (Glory) No, you can't lose me

    And when the weight
    Is layered in rounds
    Like Venutian clouds
    You can't find your way out

    Let me be
    Your glory in the sky
    Circling your shadow
    Cradling the light

    (Glory) In the blink of an eye
    (Glory) In a moment of weakness
    (Glory) I will be your armor
    (Glory) I will be your witness
    (Glory) You can't lose me
    (Glory) You can't lose me

    Sleepless night, wake again
    The strength of the heart is continuing
    Let me take your worn hands
    If love could lift us then I would carry them

    And your shield of skin and bone
    Stumbles in the sand to carry you home
    Let me be a torch to bear the light
    To stock the cellar for the long night

    Glory, Glory
    Glory, Glory
    Glory, Glory
    Glory, Glory
    Shining glory
    Glory, Glory
    Glory, Glory
    You are a shining glory
    Glory, Glory

  5. Allison Coleman

    Probably one of the most beautiful love songs ever.

  6. TommyCoopersMagicCarpetWeaver.

    My God..this song's great!.....there i was on a reasonable dosage of LSD listening to this for the first time, and...all I was seeing was David walking out onto stage at London's Royal Albert Hall and once the applause had died down , in the echoey silence opening the concert with this song.
    't'was pretty amazing!

    This song tears me up... Morbid as it is to say, but I can see my "burial" service with this song playing in the background and people walking in the woods of NH behind my parents house getting ready to spread my ashes over a drink of top shelf and this song playing.

  8. vera hes

    It is incredible how this Man performs. I love this Guy.

  9. Richard Freeman

    Thanks Mr. Dave Crosby for this music, for your music through the years. I do appreciate it... have appreciated it... on so many levels, for so long. It has made a big impression on my life.

  10. Troy Tolbert

    Gorgeous voice, melody, and strings. Just heard this on NPR radio. There's still great music on the airwaves if you know where to listen ♪👂♬

  11. Peter Mcconnell

    I saw them last night at the Castro Theatre in SF, and these songs are even more beautiful live. It was very much a band and not just Croz with some backing musicians. That gave the music incredible vitality. I hope this collaboration was more than a one off tour. I would love for the 4 of them to write and perform together again. And soon!

  12. Zack Yoder

    i think Billie Eilish and David Crosby should do an album

  13. Scott Blackerby

    How does a guy in his 70s sound so young?

    Hans Bos

    Some voices don't really change , but he doesn't sound like he's 30 either , I've got this live album from 2001 'CPR ' and I must admitt , his voice hasn't changed since then ;-)

    mulemusic

    He has two young woman and a young man singing and playing on this as well. I have listened to this at least 50 to 60 times this past two weeks. So beautiful!

  14. Karen Fruman

    To say I am obsessed is an understatement.
