Lyrics

When in Disgrace with Fortune and Men's Eyes (Sonnet 29) - Florence Welch

 

When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes

I all alone beweep my outcast state

And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries

 

And look upon myself and curse my fate

 

Wishing me like to one more rich in hope

 

Featured like him like him with friends possessed

 

Desiring this man's art and that man's scope

 

With what I most enjoy contented least

 

Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising

 

Happly I think on thee and then my state

 

Like to the lark at break of day arising

 

From sullen earth

Sings hymns at heaven's gate

 

For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings

That then I scorn to change my state with kings
