Sweet LIfe

from Sweet Life

I remember my first heartache
Learning all the different ways a heart could break
I took off to San Francisco Bay, grieving
Then there was the one in Tennessee
That one nearly was the end of me
So sweet but looks can be deceiving

I had lots of big plans for tomorrow
Most of them probably wouldn't have come true
And maybe it's a bitter pill to swallow
But it led me here to this
Sweet life beside you

I lived with someone up in Providence
Looking back it didn't make a lot of sense
One of us was always on the fence or leaving
Then there was the one in  Oregon
Who wanted me to be born again
So I was shown the door again
For being - a heathen

I had lots of big plans for tomorrow
Most of them probably won't come true
And maybe it's a bitter pill to swallow
But it led me here to this
Sweet life beside you

There's music in the kitchen
Laughter down the hall
Didn't know what I was missing
But I almost missed it all

Sweet life
Sweet life
Sweet life, beside you
