Bittersweet

(Originally sung by: Sara Bareilles/Version by: Diane de Mesa)

 

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 now...

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 now
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 now
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...
