lyrics

A woman lay dying in a white paper gown
With all of her family gathering round
The husband cried "Please, baby, please don't go"
But it was just her bones he grieved when he laid her low.

Some people hang onto pain
Some people hold onto pearls
And all the things they've collected
Stay in this world

Later when praying the man thinks, "Maybe I'm all alone
And the voice I keep hearing is just a cold dial-tone.
Still it's a fine way to face the embraces of time
Like a lover or one crucified I stretch my arms wide."

Some people hang onto pain
Some people hold onto pearls
And all the things they've collected
Stay in this world

Jubilation or sorrow it don't mean a thing
They ring in then they're wrung out on a pendulum's swing
The greatest relief is when the coin's still in spin
Two worlds blur together as we begin again

Some people hang onto pain
Some people hold onto pearls
And all the things they've collected
Stay in this world
