Woe is me, something dramatic like that I could be
Ophelia
Love's labor lost, before it began
I’m not tryin’ to be clever
I’m just sayin’ what I am
Ophelia

Oh, I’m turning over will
And I’m cleaning up this holy mess I made
Everything’s fine
Everything’s okay
Everybody loves a fool
Everybody walks away
Everybody walks away

Oh, my love
Oh alas, this has been such a sad affair
Such a sad affair
Oh and here I go again
Oh I’m sinking in my faithlessness and fear

Everything’s fine
Everything’s okay
Everybody loves a fool
Everybody walks away
Everybody walks away

Oh, I’m turning over will
I’m cleaning up this holy mess I made
I want to feel your arms around me
I want to know your love is real
I want to give you all you’ve given to me
But I’m still afraid to leave, to you

Woe is me, something dramatic like I could be
Ophelia

    General CommentI know that everyone keeps saying that this is about Joy's connection with God, but to me this song is about loving yourself, and always coming back to who you are.

    General CommentSomeone has a video where she's talking to Joy about this song and she said that it's a break up video...

    "Everybody loves a fool, Everybody walks away"
    "This has been such a sad affair"

    And I think she was also alluding to Hamlet with the use of the name "Ophelia"

    Beautiful song :)
