Marc Cohn – Girl Of Mysterious Sorrow lyrics


Verse 1:
I'm coming to see you, tomorrow sometime
Gonna bring you some roses, gonna tear
Off the vines
Gonna talk to the wind that blows through the trees
Kiss you like always from down on my knees

Gonna ask you some questions, get no replies
Wipe all the tears, falling down from my eyes
'Cause the one that I wanted, I never could know
Girl of Mysterious Sorrow
Girl of Mysterious Sorrow

Verse 2:
Gonna park in the street, gonna open the gate
Walk to the spot where you always wait
I'll be shaking my head like I usually do
'Cause the name and the dates tell me nothing
About you

But I'll sit in the shadows and let you explain
All of the sadness and all of the pain
Did it all seem so hopeless you just had to let go?
Girl of Mysterious Sorrow
Girl of Mysterious Sorrow


Mysterious... Mysterious
Mysterious... Mysterious


Verse 3:
Yeah I'm coming to see you but I really can't wait
There's just a few things I needed to say
Like why were you hiding so much of yourself?
Why were you living for somebody else?

Well I know that I've always been looking for you
But lately it's not such a hard thing to do
'Cause it seems like inside every woman I know
There's a girl of mysterious sorrow
A girl of mysterious sorrow

Mysterious... Mysterious
Mysterious... Sorrow...

Improvise ending:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
