Sad songs - Elton John

1. Strophe

Guess there are times when we all need to share a little pain. 

And ironing out the rough spots 

is the hardest part when memories remain. 

And it's times like these when we all need to hear the radio. 

'Cause from the lips of some old singer 

we can share the troubles we already know. 

 

1. Refrain

Turn them on, turn them on, turn on those sad songs. 

When all hope is gone why don't you tune in and turn them on.

They reach into your room whoah oh oh oh,

just feel their gentle touch. 

When all hope is gone, sad songs say so much. 

 

2. Strophe

If someone else is suffering enough, oh to write it down. 

When every single word makes sense, 

then it's easier to have those songs around. 

The kick inside is in the line that finally gets to you. 

And it feels so good to hurt so bad 

and suffer just enough to sing the blues. 

 

2. Refrain

So turn them on, turn them on, turn on those sad songs. 

When all hope is gone why don't you tune in and turn them on.

They reach into your room, whoah oh oh oh,

just feel their gentle touch. 

When all hope is gone, you know sad songs say so much. 

 

Bridge

Sad songs, they say, sad songs, they say, 

sad songs, they say, sad songs, they say so much.

 

3. Refrain 

So turn them on, oh turn them on, turn on those sad songs. 

When all hope is gone why don't you tune in and turn them on.

They reach into your room, whoah oh oh oh,

just feel their gentle touch. 

When all hope is gone, 

you know sad songs say so much.

 

When all hope is gone, you know sad songs say so much. 

When every little bit of hope is gone, sad songs say so much. 

When every little bit of hope is gone, sad songs say so much. 

When all hope is gone,
