Sara Bareilles Bittersweet Lyrics

Last updated: 06/19/2008 11:00:00 AM

Bittersweet seasons.
Mistake a warm winter for spring.
Seems like I’m best at leaving when leaving is not the best thing.

You couldn’t help it if you needed more than I could give.
That’s just the way it goes.

I call you misplaced but never a waste of my time.
Everybody’s gonna make mistakes,
But you’ll never be one of mine.

You couldn’t help it if you needed more than I could give.
That’s just the way it goes.
I knew you felt me leaving long before I ever did.
That’s just the way it goes now.
Loved me fearless when you needed to.
You would not rest till you came through.
So god bless and thank you.

There is no anger, it's just you and I and the truth.
You can try to make her but love will not be forced to bloom.

You couldn’t help it if you needed more than I could give.
That’s just the way it goes.
The only love worth fighting for is one that you can win and,
That’s just the way it goes now.
You would not break but you could bend.
And for love’s sake you let love end,
But I still swear that you were god sent.

And you stood before me knowing that the wings I have you gave.
And that’s just the way it goes now.
And I barely have the breath to breathe much less to fly away.
And that’s just the way it goes now.
And a silence entered the room for a one last,
"I’m gonna love you."
So god bless and thank you.
So god bless and thank you.
Thank you.
