Lyrics of “I Choose You” by “SARA BAREILLES ” from Album “The Blessed Unrest”


Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
I can’t say I’d even notice it was absent
Cause I could live by the light in your eyes

I’ll unfold before you
What I’ve strung together
The very first words
Of a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you
(Yeah)

There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me you could not come true
Just love’s illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something again

My whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you

We are not perfect
We’ll learn from our mistakes
And as long as it takes
I will prove my love to you

I am not scared of the elements
I am under-prepared, but I am willing
And even better
I get to be the other half of you

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
Yeah
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you

Lyrics of “1000 Times” by “SARA BAREILLES ” from Album “The Blessed Unrest”


Back of the room
Looking at you
Counting the steps
Between us

A hundred and five
Little blades in a line
From your skin to mine
And I feel it

Eyes on the ground
But I can’t look up now
Don’t wanna give it away
My secret

In another life,
My teeth and tongue
Would speak aloud what until now
I’ve only sung

Cause I would die to make you mine
Bleed me dry each and every time
I don’t mind, no I don’t mind it
I would come back 1000 times

You can make me wait forever
Push me away and tell me never
I don’t mind, no I don’t mind it
I would come back 1000 times
Hey hey

Kiss me goodnight
Like a good friend might
I’ll do the same
But won’t mean it

Cause love is a cage
These words on a page
Carry the pain
They don’t free it

In another life
I wouldn’t need to
Console myself
As I resign to release you

Cause I would die to make you mine
Bleed me dry each and every time
I don’t mind, no I don’t mind it
I would come back 1000 times

You can make me wait forever
Push me away and tell me never
I don’t mind, no I don’t mind it
I would come back 1000 times

Again again
I let it go, let it go
Cover my mouth
Don’t let a single word slip out

Wouldn’t wanna tell you, no
Tell you, no
Nothing could be worse
Than the risk of
Losing what I don’t have now

And we could buy the minute, though
Is it so bad if I wanna cry out

That I would die to make you mine
Bleed me dry almost every time
But I don’t mind, no I don’t mind it
I would come back 1000 times

Make me wait forever
Push me away and tell me never
I don’t mind, no I don’t mind it
I would come back 1000 times
I would come back 1000 times (Hey yeah)
I would come back 1000 times

Lyrics of “Cassiopeia” by “SARA BAREILLES ” from Album “The Blessed Unrest”


Come in close now it’s time to tell the story
Long ago, and so many years before we
Ever were, ever dreamed we even could be
There was her and her very first heartbeat

All alone in a corner of the night sky
Spiral bones of a supernova starlight
Fell in love with another burning bright
She dreamed of a way to ignite she said

Tonight
Come on, come on collide
Break me to pieces I
I think you’re just like heaven
Why, come on, come on collide
Let’s see what a fire feels like
I bet it’s just like heaven
Just like heaven
Just like heaven

Such a shame nowhere near even a near miss
Light years away from the hope of being sun-kissed
Anchored home in her interstellar sea but
Poor lonely Cassiopeia

So she sighs and she burns with desperation
Learns to cry over love of constellations
Then a spark from a star shooting too close
They both smiled “What a day to explode”
She said

Tonight
Come on, come on collide
Break me to pieces I
I think you’re just like heaven
Why, come on, come on collide
Let’s see what a fire feels like
I bet it’s just like heaven
Just like heaven
Just like heaven

Long ago in a sky built before us
A supernova grew up to be stardust

Lyrics of “Little Black Dress” by “SARA BAREILLES ” from Album “The Blessed Unrest”


Okay, I can see it now it’s all the same thing
Just different wrapping around it
No need to soften your words, they’re still gonna hurt
So don’t pull punches
I tried to be everything you’d ever want
And sometimes I even stood on my heart and stomped
Now I’m finally alone and dressed for the show
But going nowhere
They don’t need to see me crying

I’ll get my little black dress on
And if I put on my favorite song
I’m gonna dance until you’re all gone
I’ll get my little black dress on

You came, lifted me up but then you dropped a hurricane
Now I’m fighting to find the ground again, to steady my feet
Get up off my knees and just remember
That I am more than just somebody’s puppet
I can find the cord and then I’ll cut it
I stand a pretty good chance to dust myself off and dance

I’ll get my little black dress on
And if I put on my favorite song
I’m gonna dance until you’re all gone
I’ll get my little black dress on
I got my little black dress on
And if I tell myself that nothing’s wrong
This doesn’t have to be a sad song
Not with my little black dress on

It’s time to connect the dots and draw a different picture up
And paint it with the colors of everything I ever was
Return to the scene of the crime, the day I let the music die
And rewrite the final lines cause this time I

I’ll get my little black dress on
And if I put on my favorite song
I’m gonna dance until you’re all gone
I’ll get my little black dress on
I got my little black dress on
And if I tell myself that nothing’s wrong
This doesn’t have to be a sad song
Not with my little black dress on
