Beyoncé 16 CARRIAGES Lyrics, 16 CARRIAGES Lyrics Beyoncé

16 carriages driving away
While I watch them ride with my dreams away
To the summer sunset on a holy night
On a long back road all the tears I fight
16 carriages driving away
While I watch them ride with my dreams away
To the summer sunset on a holy night
On a long black road all the tears I fight

At 15 the innocence was gone astray
I had to leave my home at an early age
I saw mama praying, I saw daddy grind
All my tender problems had to leave behind
Itʼs been umpteen summers and Iʼm not in my bed
On the back of the bus in a bunk with the band
Going so hard gotta choose myself
Underpaid and overwhelmed
I might cook, clean but still wonʼt fold
Still working all my life you know
Only God knows, only God knows, only God knows

16 carriages driving away
While I watch them ride with my fears away
Into the summer sunset on a holy night
On a long back road all the tears I fight
16 carriages driving away
While I watch them ride with my fears away
To the summer sunset on a holy night
On a long back road all the tears I fight

16 dollars working all day
Ainʼt got time to waste
I got art to make
I got love to create
On this holy night
They won’t dim my light
All these years I fight

It’s been 38 summers and I’m not in my bed
In the back on the bus, in the bunk with the band
Going so hard, now I miss my kids
Overworked and overwhelmed
I might cook, clean but still won’t fold
Still working on my life you know
Only God knows, only God knows, only God knows

16 carriages driving away
While I watch them ride with my fears away
To the summer sun set on a holy night
On a long back road all the tears I fight
16 carriages driving away
While I watch them ride with my fears away
To the summer sun set on a holy night
On a long back road all these tears I fight

At 15 the innocence was gone astray
Had to take care of home at an early age
I saw mama crying, and I saw daddy lying
Had to sacrifice and leave my fears behind
For legacy, if it’s the last thing I do
You’ll remember me, ’cause we got something to prove
In your memory
On the highway to truth
Still see our faces when you close your eyes

16 carriages driving away
While I watch them ride with my dreams away
