Bitter Sweet Bliss

from by Sofia Talvik

lyrics

I wake up to your sad and humdrum everyday
the grey sky, the harbor
the streets that seem to pray
for life they'll never gain

I walk down the old and worn-out avenue
past the places I always will connect to you
this used to be our town

I thought that I could leave this place behind me
never fully understood how hard it would be
it fills me with a sort of bittersweet bliss
but I can't regain the times I miss

I wake up to your sad and humdrum everyday
the one you left me the time you said you couldn't stay
it's all that I've got left

I thought that I could leave this place behind me
never fully understood how hard it would be
it fills me with a sort of bittersweet bliss
but I can't regain the times

I thought that I could leave this place behind me
never fully understood how hard it would be
it fills me with a sort of bittersweet bliss
but I can't regain the one I miss
