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

Lykke Li, Sadness is a blessing
