about

This was fun. It was our first song assignment of the semester in Soulwriters University. I had this melody and the words "Too Sweet" rolling around in my head for about a month. A couple of people have asked about the meaning so, let me explain: I've had to give up chocolate. Well, mostly. I can have it from time to time but I've had to back off which is difficult because, if you know me, you know I have an obsession with it. So, to make a long story short, this song is about obsessions and how they lead us unto temptation and when it makes us sick we have to fix it and fixing it makes us stronger and healthier and much, much better. Tah-dah!

lyrics

Don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me
Don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me
Don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me now

I’ll be the thought that makes you shiver,
run your fingers through your hair
I’ll be the one you want to hold but the one you wouldn’t dare
I’ll be a constant reminder of a touch you never felt
I’ll be the words that you whisper alone unto yourself

So, don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me
Don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me
Don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me now

I’ll be the sweat upon your brow, the blood upon your lip
I’ll be the string you’ve been winding around your fingertip
And when you’re helpless in the tide, tethered to the moon
I’ll make question your conclusions, curse all your rules

So, don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me
Don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me
Don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me now

I’ll be the shadow of a doubt that drifts across your mind
I’ll be the liquor that you drink to fill the emptiness inside
You’ll want to do everything you never thought you could
I’ll be the worst that can happen for your own damn good

So don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me
Don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me
Don’t you be too sweet, too sweet to me now

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
