Sweet Thing

(McDonald/McAlinden)

         

When I'm asleep I'm dreaming of you,
When I'm awake I'm 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 I'd like to believe I'm everything you need..
Oh oh oh..

Now that you've gone-sweet sweet thing,
If I could help myself-sweet sweet thing,
If I could tell myself love's sweet still..

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

Please don't let me down again,
Come on if you're waiting to be wanted,
Time takes its time in passing you slow..
If at all..

And if everything you need
Is everything you share,
Then I'd like to believe
I'm the one that you need.

Oh oh oh.. (come back to me baby)
Oh oh oh.. (come back to me baby)

Now that you've gone-sweet sweet thing,
If I could help myself-sweet sweet thing,
If I could tell myself love's sweet still..

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

Now that you've gone-sweet sweet thing,
If I could help myself-sweet sweet thing,
If I could tell myself love's sweet still..

Living a little while-sweet sweet thing,
With you a little while-sweet sweet thing,
More than a little while-wanting you..

Now that you've gone-sweet sweet thing,
If I could help myself-sweet sweet thing,
If I could stop myself wanting you..
