lyrics

Were those footsteps I heard unraveling
Off down the road, or did they come
It's probably them women who were made at me
Howling like the river beneath the red eyes of the sun
Howling like the river beneath the red eyes of the sun

They shot the message, then they shot the messenger
I don't know why that had to be done
But I've always thought that maybe woman like that
Should be left to rule the world,
Maybe then, some justice would come

Ohhhhh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Terrible beauty really ain't all that fun
Ohhhh, oh, oh, oh, oh
And it's a terrible beauty, that can't be undone
Ohhhhh, oh, oh, oh, oh
For righteousness and cruelty are the ploughing fields of the young

Did you ever wonder if someone's listening
Like at the doorway of the sun
Went in the river cause it was glistening
But nobody appeared so I just felt dumb
Nobody came so I went home and wondered bout love

I saw a pretty girl at least I think she was
I felt so lonely I had to run
Don't it seem crazy the way some people walk round
As if their eyes were pools of lightening and roses, leaked from their tongue

Ohhhhh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Terrible beauty really ain't all that fun
Ohhhh, oh, oh, oh, oh
And it's a terrible beauty, that can't be undone
Ohhhhh, oh, oh, oh, oh
But confusion and wonder are like a kind of beauty, for some
