Mitski – Because Dreaming Costs Money, My Dear lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can still smell the fire
Even though it’s long died out
The smoke still hangs in my hair
And on some quiet evenings it burns my eyes

[Chorus]
So darling, play your violin
I know it’s what you live for
Darling, play your violin
We will manage somehow

[Verse 2]
I once lived in the sea
Bring me to your ear, you can hear
The tide where I used to be
Though now I’m but a shell
Oh babe
Don’t say sorry

[Chorus]
Darling, play your violin
I know it’s what you live for
Darling, play your violin
We will manage somehow

[Post-Chorus]
Don’t dare regret anything
Remember what you’re here for, you
Just play your violin
And we will manage somehow
