Such Sweet Sorrow

I want you not to need it
But where are all the signs?
You keep me hanging on a word
You tease me under water, when we’re both under orders
We love each other out of thirst

And you’re really hurting now
Cause you said you wouldn’t do this anymore
And you just remember me
From another century, but I’m not there

I say a prayer for yesterday with such sweet sorrow
Remembering a face with such sweet sorrow
Imagining it today with such sweet sorrow now

Holding out a hand
Was never hard to do
But now what will we hold on to?
We’re stronger than we think but
Weak enough to lose
Everything that we will cling on to

And I promise I won’t return
Even thought it was hard to learn
It’s finally sinking in
And I see your stare attack in the wall I’m staring at
But you’re not there.

I say a prayer for yesterday with such sweet sorrow
Remembering a face with such sweet sorrow
Imagining it today with such sweet sorrow now

I want you not to need it
But where are all the signs?
You keep me hanging on a word
You tease me under water, when we’re both under orders
We love each other out of thirst

So pray for yesterday
Remembering a face
Imagine it today…
With such sweet sorrow
