Richard Pryor Addresses A Tearful Nation

Richard Pryor Addresses A Tearful Nation

Joe Henry

Sometimes I think I've almost fooled myself
Sometimes I think I've almost fooled myself
Spreading out my wings
Above us like a tree
Laughing now, out loud
Almost like I was free (Repeat 2X)

I look at you as the thing I wanted most
You look at me, and it's like you've seen a ghost
I wear the face
Of all this has cost
Everything you tried to keep away from me
Everything I took from you and lost (Repeat 2X)

Lights shine above me, they're like your eyes above the street
Lights shine below me, they're like stars beneath my feet
I stood on your shoulders
And I walked on my hands
You watched me while I tried to fall
You can't bear to watch me land (Repeat 2X)

Take me away, carry me like a dove
Take me away, carry me like a dove
Love me like you're lying
Let me feel you near
Remember me for trying
And excuse me while I disappear (Repeat 2X)
I disappear...disappear
