Sweetest Thing lyrics

My love she throws me
Like a rubber ball
Oh, oh oh, the sweetest thing
She won't catch me
Or break my fall
Oh, oh oh, the sweetest thing

Baby got blue skies up ahead
But in this I'm a rain cloud
You know she likes a dry kind of love
Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing

I'm losing you, yeah
I'm losing you, hey
Ain't love the sweetest thing

I wanted to run
But she made me crawl
Oh, oh oh, the sweetest thing
With eternal fire
She turned me to straw
Oh oh, the sweetest thing
You know I got black eyes
But they burn so brightly for her
Mine is a blind kind of love
Oh, oh oh, the sweetest thing

I'm losing you
I'm losing you, yeah
Ain't love the sweetest thing
Oh, oh, oh, the sweetest thing
Oh ho, yay

Blue eyed boy
Meets a brown eyed girl
Oh, oh oh, the sweetest thing
You can sew it up
But you still see the tear
Oh, oh oh, the sweetest thing

Baby's got blue skies up ahead
And in this I'm a rain cloud
You know we got a stormy kind of love
Oh, oh oh, the sweetest thing

The sweetest thing
Oh, oh oh, the sweetest thing
Oh, oh oh
Ain't love the sweetest thing
