Certain Sadness - lyrics

CERTAIN SADNESS

Words by Sara Lewis, Music by John Vitz

 

I know I heard you say, “Tomorrow”.

I know I heard it clearly, in the dark.

Now, all alone, I feel your presence.

All of my belongings have your mark.

 

So, why this CERTAIN SADNESS that’s starting to appear,

The undertow of my suspicious fears?

Oh, why this CERTAIN SADNESS?

It’s undefined - but here.

How can I really know if you’re sincere?

 

Can love survive on mixed emotions?

People tend to fight for what they want.

I pledge my profound devotion,

While you carry on, so non chalant.

 

And now this CERTAIN SADNESS is starting to appear,

The undertow of my suspicious fears.

Oh, why this CERTAIN SADNESS?

It’s undefined - but here.

How can I really know if you’re sincere?

 

(Instrumental Bridge)

 

I can’t go on with indecision.

Tell me if our love is right or wrong.

And do you see what I envision?

I lie awake and wonder all night long.

 

For now this CERTAIN SADNESS is starting to appear,

The undertow of my suspicious fears.

Oh, why this CERTAIN SADNESS?

It’s undefined - but here.

How can I really know if you’re sincere?
