Spring Awakening - I Don't Do Sadness lyrics

MORITZ
Awful sweet to be a little butterfly
Just wingin' over things, and nothin' deep inside
Nothin' goin', goin' wild in you, you know
You're slowin' by the riverside or floatin' high and blue
Or maybe, cool to be a little summer wind
Like once through everything, and then away again
With a taste of dust in your mouth all day but no need to know
Like sadness, you just sail away

'Cause, you know, I don't do sadness
Not even a little bit
Just don't need it in my life
Don't want any part of it
I don't do sadness
Hey, I've done my time
Lookin' back on it all
Man, it blows my mind
I don't do sadness, so been there
Don't do sadness, just don't care

ILSE: Moritz Stiefel!?
MORITZ: Ilse?! You frightened me.
ILSE: What're you looking for?
MORITZ: If only I knew.
ILSE: Then what's the use of looking? I'm on the way home, want to come?
MORITZ: I don't know.
ILSE: God, you remember how we used to run back to my house and play pirates? Wendla Bergman, Melchior Gabor, you, and I?

Spring and summer, every other day
Blue wind gets so sad
Blowin' through the thick corn through the bales of hay
Through the open books on the grass
Spring and summer
Sure, when it's autumn
Wind always wants to creep up and haunt you
Whistling, it's got you
With its heartache, with its sorrow
Winter wind sings, and it cries

Spring and summer, every other day
Blue wind gets so pained
Blowin' through the thick corn, through the bales of hay
Through the sudden drift of the rain
Spring and summer

MORITZ: Actually, I better go.
ILSE: Walk as far as my house with me.
MORITZ: I wish I could.
ILSE: Then why don't you?
MORITZ: Eighty lines of Virgil, sixteen equations, a paper on the Hapsburgs...

So, maybe I should be some kinda laundry line
Hang their things on me, and I will swing 'em dry
You just wave in the sun through the afternoon
And then see: they come to set you free, beneath the risin' moon

MORITZ / ILSE
'Cause, you know / Spring and summer
I don't do sadness / Every other day
Not even a little bit / Blue wind gets so lost
Just don't need it in my life / Blowin' through the thick corn through the bales of hay
Don't want any part of it / Spring and summer
I don't do sadness / Every other day
Hey, I've done my time / Blue wind gets so lost
Lookin' back on it all / Blowin' through the thick corn
Man, it blows my mind / Through the bales of hay
I don't do sadness / And the wandering
So been there / Clouds of the dust
Don't do sadness / Spring and...
Just don't care / Summer
