"Sadness Is A Blessing" as written by Rick Nowels, Lykke Li Timotej Zachrisson and Bj�rn Daniel Arne Yttling....
My wounded rhymes make silent cries tonight
My wounded rhymes make silent cries tonight
And I keep it like a burning
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 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
Oh, sadness I'm your girl

    My InterpretationI love this song so much. It's been on repeat today and yesterday. I think this song is about being afraid of something new. This girl's been so sad, it's only thing she knows, and now it seems that she's going to be happy and it's surreal for her to let go of all the negativity she's always had to endure. I guess you can interpret it as being afraid of a new and loving relationship, whether it be platonic or romantic.

    On the other hand, however, judging solely based on the chorus, it's about being really sad all the time - which is exactly how I'm feeling right now. The latter part of my explanation resonates more for me.

    Sadness is a "curse"

    At least, that is what it sounds like to me. ;)

    General CommentI love how anthemic this song sounds; it fits perfectly with the song's bittersweet celebration of sadness.

    General Commentvery simple perfect song. it's how she reaches out to her sadness, for inspiration, but it can also mean that she's used to that constant sadness, that when she's not sad, she feels lost
