My one heart hurt anotherSo only one life can't be enoughCan you give me just anotherFor that one who got away?Lonely I, I'm so alone nowThere'll be no rest for the wickedThere's no song for the choirThere's no hope for the wearyIf you let them win without a fightIf one heart can mend anotherOnly then can we beginSo won't you hold on a little longer?Don't let them get awayLonely I, I'm so alone nowThere'll be no rest for the wickedThere's no song for the choirThere's no hope for the wearyIf you let them win without a fightI let my good one downI let my true love dieI had his heart, but I broke it every time
Lonely I, I'm so alone nowThere'll be no rest for the wickedThere's no song for the choirThere's no hope for the wearyIf you let them win without a fightI let my good one downI let my true love dieI had his heart, but I broke it every time

You are watching: No rest for the wicked lykke li lyrics

No Rest for the Wicked is the second song I wrote for I Never Learn. I wrote it in Sweden when I was packing up my shit, and I’d just gotten out of a relationship and it was a horrible time. I just had the hurt, shame, sadness, guilt, longing. The vocal track, the take, is the demo. In the verse, I’m referring to myself pleading guilty, but I’m referring to all of us.

Li sampled Daniel Johnston’s “Some Things Last A Long Time,” prevalent through the piano notes that run throughout the song.
