Sabra Girl - Nickel Creek Lyrics

Nickel Creek CHORDS

Sabra Girl

Lonely, the life that I once led
Strange, the paths on which we tread
Led me to you, unlikely but true
Sabra girl, clouding my view

Rainy the day, the first time we met
Deep was the talk, forever my debt
It didn't seem wrong to sing a sad song
Sabra girl, soon you'd be gone
Early the morning and sad the goodbye
With a wave of your hand and a smile of your eye
So lately did meet, no sooner to part
Sabra girl, homeward must start

Rosey the lines you wrote with your hand
Reading between them, to misunderstand
I made the mistake you said not to make

Yes, reading your letters, conviction did grow
I thought it a chance; I knew I must go
It's hard to believe I could be so naive
Sabra girl, flattered but deceived

Now you just told me that friendship is all
I'm forced to repair the breach in my wall
Illusions and dreams, as usual, it seems
Sabra girl, they've been my downfall

Lonely, the life and dismal the view
Closed is the road that leads to you
Since better can be, as friends we'll agree
Sabra girl, time will cure me
