A Sweet Sweet Man - Lyrics by Tindersticks


Lyrics

Sweet sweet man pt. 1
--------------------------------------------

She sang for me, her heart on her tongue
She sang so pretty
She danced for me, her heart on her hips
She danced so fine
She said "oh, a sweet sweet man like you,
What can i do for you?"
I said "a sweet sweet man like me
I can only bring you misery"
I lay awake that night, listening to her breathing
Thinking how strange it would be
If i awoke and she wasn't there
I could feel myself, feel myself changing
No longer me, i was only a part of her
I said "a sweet sweet man like me
I can only bring you misery"

So they put me down, back where i started from
But where i started seems so high
I start to climb

Sweet sweet man pt. 2
---------------------------------------------------
I lay awake that night, listening to her breathing
Thinking how strange it would be
If i awoke and she wasn't there
I could feel myself, feel myself changing
No longer me, i was only a part of her
She said "oh a sweet-sweet man like you
What can i do for you?"
I said "a sweet sweet man like me
I can only bring you misery"
