Because Dreaming Costs Money My Dear
Mitski Lyrics


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

So darling, play your violin
I know it's what you live for
Darling, play your violin
We will manage somehow

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

Darling, play your violin
I know it's what you live for
Darling, play your violin
We will manage somehow

Don't dare regret anything
Remember what you're here for, you
Just play your violin
And we will manage somehow

[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

did anyone else grow up without any big dreams because they knew those dreams wouldn't come true or is that just me?

Blank[d]

I grew up without them too.

No, I grew up like that too. One of my family's biggest "fears" is exactly that, because they know that deep down I never had dreams or goals because I could end up with myself before.

Cookie Cat

yup

Miranda Zhang

I’ve always had dreams unconsciously, never really thinking whether or not they’ll come true. I wonder what I’ll do in the future

billie is cool

i wish dreaming didn’t cost so much. money, time, energy, everything. it’s so painful to know that once i grow up, i won’t have time to dream and i won’t have money to even think about dreaming. i can feel myself getting old even though i’m only 15 and still have my whole life in front of me

Gen

14 here, I understand you so much :c

Nina Lisazu

same, and im 16

ok yes

Life is about keeping the ability to dream, to create. You don't stop living at any age.
The teen years are especially hard, remember, you're worth it in life and it won't always be this awful. Life is always different 3 months after the thing you don't want to happen happens.
