Lyrics

I come from a long line of women who cry
Who carry a heavy burden, but they still fly
Who lead with their hearts, throw the doors open wide
If you feel the same, and you don’t mind the rain
You’re welcome inside

Chorus 1:
Carry us over the troubled waters
We’ve carried for so many years
Our Madonna of tears

Love is a silver blade, sharpened by steel
You can use it to cut both ways, and it hurts til it heals
Love makes a mark, leaves a terrible scar
It’s hard to hold on, it’s hard to let go
When it’s breaking your heart

Chorus:
Carry us over the troubled waters
Carry us all the way home
Take away the sorrow from our mothers and daughters
We’ve carried for so many years
Our Madonna of tears

Bridge:
Light a candle for my soul, Sending out a prayer
Here’s the secret I was told: Measure tear by tear

Chorus:
Carry us over the troubled waters
Carry us all the way home
Take away the sorrow from our mothers and daughters
We’ve carried for so many years
Our Madonna of tears
