      Townes Van Zandt - For The Sake Of The Song Música y Letra

      Oh, why does she sing her sad songs for me,
      I'm not the one
      Tenderly bring her soft sympathy
      I've just begun
      To see my way clear
      And it's plain,
      If I stop I will fall
      I can lay down a tear for her pain
      Just a tear and that's all
      
      Oh , what does she want me to do? 
      She says that she knows 
      That moments are rare
      I suppose that it's true
      Then on she goes
      To say I don't care,
      Ah, she knows
      That I do
      
      Maybe she just has to sing, for the sake of the song
      And who do I think that I am to decide that she's wrong
      
      She'd like to think I was cruel,
      But she knows that's a lie
      For I would be
      No more than a tool
      If I allowed her to cry
      All over me.
      
      Oh my sorrow is real
      Even though
      I can't change my plan
      If she could see how I feel
      Then I know
      That she'd understand
      
      Oh does she actually think I'm to blame? 
      Does she really believe
      That some word of mine
      Could relieve
      All her pain? 
      Can't she see that she grieves
      Just because she's been blindly deceived
      By her shame? 
      
      Maybe she just has to sing, for the sake of the song
      And who do I think that I am to decide that she's wrong
      
      Oh but nothin's what it seems,
      Maybe she'll start someday to realize
      If she abandons her dreams,
      Then all the words she can say are only lies
      Why can't she see that to gain
      Is only to lose? 
      All that she offers me are her chains
      And I got to refuse
      
      Oh but it's only to herself that she's lied
      She likes to pretend
      There's something that she should defend,
      With her pride
      And I don't intend
      To stand her and be the friend
      From whom she must hide
      
      Maybe she just has to sing, for the sake of the song
      And who do I think that I am to decide that she's wrong
