16 CARRIAGES Lyrics – Beyoncé

16 CARRIAGES Lyrics

[Chorus]
Sixteen carriages drivin’ 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
Sixteen carriages drivin’ 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

[Verse 1]
At fifteen, the innocence was gone astray
Had to leave my home at an early age
I saw Mama prayin’, I saw Daddy grind
All my tender problems, had to leave behind

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s been umpteen summers, and I’m not in my bed
On the back of the bus in a bunk with the band
Goin’ so hard, gotta choose myself
Undеrpaid and overwhelmed

I might cook, clеan, but still won’t fold
Still workin’ all my life, you know
Only God knows, only God knows
Only God knows

[Chorus]
Sixteen carriages drivin’ 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
Sixteen carriages drivin’ 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

[Verse 2]
Sixteen dollars, workin’ all day
Ain’t 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

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s been thirty-eight summers, and I’m not in my bed
On the back of the bus in a bunk with the band
Goin’ so hard, now I miss my kids
Overworked and overwhelmed
I might cook, clean, but still won’t fold
Still workin’ all my life, you know
Only God knows, only God knows
Only God knows

[Chorus]
Sixteen 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
Sixteen 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 these tears I fight

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, oh
Oh

[Bridge]
At fifteen, the innocence was gone astray
Had to take care of home at an early age

I saw Mama cryin’, I saw Daddy lyin’
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 somethin’ to prove
In your memory, on the highway to truth
Still see our faces when you close your eyes

[Outro]
Sixteen carriages drivin’ away
While I watch them ride with my dreams away
