lyrics

Sake of a Song

Accentuate the negative you said
Draw out the darkness from your head
But keep it close so you can use it
No great art, you say, can be derived
From any heart in love with life
And you can list off names to prove it
But your heroes are all dead men long since gone
Who left kept their quill’s in that sullen ink too long
And went laughing and crying, living and dying
All for the sake of a song

Go on, break another heart
Break your own so you can start
To lament the things that made you
Oh and what a song you’ll write
Of thoughts that haunt you in the night
And how you’ve no one now to save you
Think of all those bridges that you’ve burned
The champion cuddlers you spurned
laughing and crying, living and dying
All for the sake of a song

Think of all those bridges that you’ve burned
The champion cuddlers you spurned
laughing and crying, living and dying
All for the sake of a song
