Is losing something that you love
a blessing in disguise
who comes and goes into our life
not for us to decide
You can bury them deep inside
but you can never hide
You waited for them long enough
It's time to say goodbye

O my lordy O my god
I finally see what's going on
I count the fingers that you made me
Am I squandering the life you gave me

I never seem to find the words
the devil ties my tongue
Then I find the perfect words
the moment you have gone
Are we still lovers we'll never be friends
Is this all there is? Is this where it ends?
Was it fate? Was it games of chance?
Are we victims of the circumstances

O my lordy.......

Bend your words into a prayer
send them on a trip some where
Let them ring and resonate
Kiss your lips and seal my fate
maybe losing something
that you love is a blessing in disguise
you've been their slave for far too long
It's time to say goodbye

    General CommentI love this song, this is my favorite one...and I find the lyrics beautiful. This song is quite positive as it tells that we always have to look at the bright side of live...even if we lose our lover. But on the other hand, there is something really tragic in it...wel it's Devotchka and this is always that way I guess ^^

    General CommentStarlight definately hits the nail on the head regarding the bright side of life despite "losing something that you love". This seems to be a reconciliation of all the lost/mixed emotions of the last two albums, a personal therapy for nick urata perhaps, and a finding of god.
