Jars of Clay lyrics : "Tea And Sympathy"

Fare thee well
Trade in all our words for tea and sympathy
Wonder why we tried, for things that could never be

Play our hearts lament, like an unrehearsed symphony

Not intend

To leave this castle full of empty rooms
Our love the captive in the tower never rescued
And all the victory songs

Seem to be playing out of tune

But it's not the way

That it has to be
Don't trade our love for tea and sympathy
'Cause it's not the way

That it has to be

You begin

And all your words fall to the floor and break like china cups
And the waitress grabs a broom and tries to sweep them up
I reach for my tea and slowly drink in


CHORUS
'Cause it's not the way

That it has to be
Don't trade our love for tea and sympathy
'Cause it's not the way

That it has to be
Don't trade our love for tea and sympathy


So fare thee well
Words the bag of leaves that fill my head
I could taste the bitterness and call the waitress instead

She holds the answer, smiles and asks one teaspoon or two

CHORUS x 2


Don't trade us for tea and sympathy
Don't trade us for tea and sympathy

We can work it out
Don't trade us for tea and sympathy
Don't trade us for tea and sympathy

We can work it out
Don't trade us for tea and sympathy
We can work it out
