i really loved harold lyrics – emiliana torrini

they told me when i was little,
i’d go to heaven if i was good.
now i’m a long way from little,
’cause i tried to find heaven,
’cause i thought that i could.
i thought that i could.

and i thought i loved harold,
and i really loved john,
i really loved alphy
i almost loved tom.
i loved them so easy,
and i loved them so free.
now i don’t think that heaven
will wanna love me.

hallo, song of the willow,
the dreams under my pillow,
turned to tears that i cried.
beauty and love are our riddle,
never to answer, but always to try.
and, boy, did i try.

and i tried with harold,
and i tried with john.
i tried with alphy,
and almost with tom.
i left myself open,
for the whole world to see.
now i don’t think that heaven
will wanna love me.

so i said goodbye to harold,
and goodbye to john.
goodbye to alphy,
and goodbye to tom.
i loved them so easy,
and i loved them so free.
now i don’t think that heaven
will wanna love me.

oh say, can you see?
by the dawn’s early light
no light will shine me
