Sweet Thing

 

(H. McDonald - A. McAlinden)
 

When Iím asleep Iím dreaming of you
When Iím awake Iím dreaming of you
Nights flicker with the stars that come down over you

Can our hearts synchronise my baby
Miles of distance come between us like years
Covered by the same sky, but so separately

And Iíd like to believe, Iím everything you need
Oh oh oh

Now that youíre gone, sweet sweet thing
If I could help myself, sweet sweet thing
If I could tell myself loveís sweet still

Am I dreaming
Even if it is a world troubled
We can fall asleep
Side by side in the night

Please donít let me down again
Come on if youíre wanting to be wanted
Time takes itís time in passing you slow
If at all

And if everything you need
Is everything you share
Oh oh oh

Now that youíre gone, sweet sweet thing
If I could help myself, sweet sweet thing
And if I could tell myself loveís sweet still

Oh, if I could help myself
More than a little while
Wanting you
Oh, living a little while
With you a little while
And if I could stop myself
Wanting you
Now that youíre goneÖ
