Sorrow Is My Name

from by Connie Converse

lyrics

O keep on sleeping
When I pass your door
And keep on hoping
I will come no more
To me, tomorrow
Will be all the same
For sorrow, sorrow
Sorrow is my name

O keep on singing
When you hear my feet
And keep on dreaming
If your dream is sweet
And you may borrow
Candles for your game
But still your sorrow's
Coming just the same.

And if you fear me
I will come in haste
And if you love me
I will go away
And if you scorn me
I will lay you waste
And if you know me
I will come to stay

So keep on singing
When you hear my feet
And keep on dreaming
If your dream is sweet
To me, tomorrow
Will be all the same
For sorrow, sorrow
Sorrow is my name
