sadness is a blessing lyrics – lykke li

“sadness is a blessing”

my wounded rhymes make silent cries tonight
my wounded rhymes make silent cries tonight
and i keep it like a burning(?)
i’m longing from a distance

i ranted, i pleaded, i beg him not to go
for sorrow, the only lover i’ve ever known

sadness is a blessing
sadness is a pearl
sadness is my boyfriend
oh, sadness i’m your girl

these scars of mine make wounded rhymes tonight
i dream of times when you were mine so i
can keep it like a haunting
heart beating close to mine

sadness is a blessing
sadness is a pearl
sadness is my boyfriend
oh, sadness i’m your girl

i ranted, i pleaded, i beg him not to go
for sorrow, the only lover i’ve ever known
every night i rant, i plead, i beg him not to go
will sorrow be the only lover i can call my own?

sadness is a blessing
sadness is a pearl
sadness is my boyfriend
oh, sadness i’m your girl
sadness is my boyfriend
oh, sadness i’m your girl
oh, sadness i’m your girl
