Happier times,
Flash through my mind.
We both say it's over and
I believe it this time.
All the pain that I hide,
Let it play through the night.

A sad, sad serenade.
Sad serenade, we almost got it right.
A sad, sad serenade.
Sad serenade, for every broken heart tonight.

All the love that we made,
Turn it up, let it play
A sad, sad serenade,
Sad serenade.

I won't regret what I won't forget
Memories and your number,
Are all I have left.

I wish you the best, I really do,
Even though I know that I'm still not over you.
I know that we both are to blame,
I can't believe, you didn't fight harder for me.

It's a sad, sad serenade.
Sad serenade, we almost got it right.
A sad, sad serenade.
Sad serenade, for every broken heart tonight.

All the love that we made,
Turn it up, let it play
A sad, sad serenade,
Sad serenade.

The more you love, the more it hurts,
When it ends, when it's over
All that's left are the memories
Playing over, and over.

In your head, in your heart,
Turn it up, make it stop.
Tonight, all over the world,
The most beautiful song ever heard,

Is a sad, sad serenade,
Sad serenade, we almost got it right.
A sad, sad serenade.
Sad serenade, for every broken heart tonight.

All the love that we made,
Turn it up, let it play.

A sad, sad serenade,
Sad serenade.
A sad, sad serenade

    General CommentSad Serenade” is a painful synth-pop ode to a relationship that’s come to an end, and also the first time Selena’s displayed any sort of vulnerability during the Stars Dance era, apart from the leaked “Love Will Remember.” “A sad, sad serenade…we almost got it right!” Selena cries out above the surging club beats.

    It’s a gorgeously heartbreaking tune, with the kind of lyrics that leave a lasting sting: “I wish you the best, I really do / Even though I know that I’m still not over you / I know that we both are to blame / I can’t believe you didn’t fight harder for me,” she yelps. Gulp! (Also, this would probably sound equally amazing arranged as a piano ballad.)

    “Sad Serenade” might just be the best song from the entire Stars Dance campaign so far — so naturally, it’s not making it onto the album. Wait, WHAT?!

    Indeed: Whether Selena just wanted to keep the record upbeat, or things with Justin Bieber are just way too real right now (or perhaps the line “all the love that we made” is just too risque), it’s not on the final album tracklisting — making this sad, sad serenade all the more devastating.
