  • Sorrow found me when I was young,
    Sorrow waited, sorrow won.
    Sorrow that put me on the pills,
    It's in my honey it's in my milk.
    It's only about half a heart alone
    On the water,
    Cover me in rag and bones, sympathy.
    'Cause I don't wanna get over you.
    I don't wanna get over you.

    Sorrows my body on the waves
    Sorrows a girl inside my cage
    I live in a city sorrow built
    It's in my honey, it's in my milk.
    It's only my half of heart alone,
    On the water,
    Cover me in rag and bones, sympathy.
    'Cause I don't wanna get over you.
    I don't wanna get over you.

    It's only my half of heart alone,
    On the water,
    Cover me in rag and bones, sympathy.

    'Cause I don't wanna get over you.

    I don't wanna get over you. Writer/s: Aaron Brooking Dessner, Matthew Donald Berninger
