Blessing in Disguise

This song is by DeVotchKa and appears on the album A Mad & Faithful Telling (2008).

Original video
Is losing something that you love
A blessing in disguise
Who comes and goes into our lives
Not for us to decide

You can bury it deep inside
But you can never hide
You waited for them long enough
It's time to say goodbye

And o my lordy, o my God
I finally see what's going on
I count the fingers that you made me
Am I squandering the life you gave me?

I never seem to find the words
The devil ties my tongue
Then I find the perfect words
The moment you have gone

Are we still lovers, we'll never be friends
Is this all there is? Is this where it ends?
But was it fate? Was it games of chance?
Are we victims of the circumstance

And o my lordy, o my God
I finally see what's going on
I count the fingers that you made me
Am I squandering the life you gave me?

Bend your words into a prayer
Send them on a trip somewhere
Let them ring and resonate
Kiss your lips and seal my fate

Maybe losing something that you love
Is a blessing in disguise
You've been their slave for far too long
It's time to say goodbye

And o my lordy, o my God
I finally see what's going on
I count the fingers that you made me
Am I squandering the life you gave me?
