Sad Song
Jonas von der Burg, Anoo Bhagavan, Niclas von der Burg

You packed your clothes and your books and your empty smile
You took your time but you’re finally out
Now I can breathe, I can dance, I can run a mile
You think I’m cruel but you know that I’m right
‘Cause we were ordinary, bored and wary of the things we said

It ain’t a crime to sing a sad song
One about love, now that it’s gone
It ain’t a crime to sing a sad song
One about us, now that we’re done

You give me wings, give me life, when you’re not around
You were no good till I left you behind
You made me grey, just a face in another crowd
Now I’m alone and I’m one of a kind
Yeah, we were ordinary, quite contrary to a stormy day

It ain’t a crime to sing a sad song
One about love, now that it’s gone
It ain’t a crime to sing a sad song
One about us, now that we’re done

And I knew that we were all wrong
But you needed me to move you along
And I know we didn’t belong together
We were ordinary, bored and wary of the things we said

It ain’t a crime to sing a sad song
One about love, now that it’s gone
It ain’t a crime to sing a sad song
One about us, now that we’re done

It ain’t a crime to sing a sad song
One about love, now that it’s gone
It ain’t a crime to sing a sad song
One about us, now that we’re done

It ain’t a crime to sing a sad song
One about love, now that it’s gone
