Because Youre So Sweet - Lyrics by Erasure


Because you're so sweet
You lift up my heart
And i'll fall back again
But i don't know
Quite which way to turn

The light in your eyes
Touches the sky
And i'm your man again
And you hold me
As close as close can be

And many's the time
That you've enchanted me
Now i want you back
Here in my loving arms
For eternity

You look and you smile
Warm me inside
Cause you're so good to me
A beauty
Filled with the joys of spring

No love is too pure
To give to the world
In her naivety
Or too tender
To caress with a simple kiss

And many's the time
That you've enchanted me
I want you back
Back in my loving arms
For eternity
