threnody lyrics – frida

lilacs blossom just as sweet
now my heart is shattered
if i bowled it down the street
who’s to say it mattered?

if there’s one that rode away
what would i be missing?
lips that taste of tears, they say
are the best for kissing

eyes that watch the morning star
seem a little brighter
arms held out to darkness
are usually whiter

shall i bar the strolling guest?
bind my brow with willow
when, they say, the empty breast
is the softer pillow?

that a heart falls tinkling down
never think it ceases
every likely lad in town
gathers up the pieces

if there’s one gone whistling by
would i let it grieve me?
let him wonder if i lie
let him half believe me
