lyrics

Cold hearts on a Winter day
Lament the face of spring
Resisting change, what’ere it be
And what the sun may bring
Unless you rest a bit, my dear
You’ll never find your way
A mark, a scar, is what you are
But never on display

Sometimes I wish I’d never known

Be it jade, it shatters
Be it gold, it breaks

Sweet and sighing, warm as rain
A pleasant, gentle bird
Throughout the night in unseen flight
A humble cry is heard
Demure, reserved, but never weak
A catalyst of care
And everyday discovering
Just what was hidden there

Sometimes I wish I’d never known

Be it jade, it shatters

Be it gold, it breaks

Sometimes I wish I’d never known
Sometimes I wish I didn’t know
You knew I didn’t need to know
I don’t wanna know

Be it jade, it shatters
Be it gold, it breaks
