Ryan Adams – When You Cross Over Lyrics

When You Cross Over Lyrics – Ryan Adams

In Carolina
There were pictures on the wall
And the pain is lighter
The house is empty now and only shadows fall

And when you cross over
I hope she’s waiting there for you
When you cross over
Please know that I’ll always love you
When you cross over
Into the spaces in the blue
When you cross over
I hope your pain returns into the light
When you cross over tonight

My brother
Born in Alabama just as winter calmed
My family moved to Carolina
In the shadows of the pines and lumberyards

And when you cross over
I hope they’re waiting there for you
When you cross over
Please know that I’ll always love you
When you cross over
Into the spaces in the blue
And may your pain return into the light
When you cross over tonight

I know you didn’t wanna leave this way
I know you tried your best to hide it
I’m gonna love you now, anyway

In Carolina
Roses bloom beside the house
Your brother and your sister, your mother and your father
All of your friends gather around

And when you cross over
I hope they’re waiting there for you
When you cross over
Please know that I’ll always love you
When you cross over
To the space between the blue
And all the pain dissolves into the light
When you cross over tonight
