Music Monday: One Sweet Love

| Music, Wedding Ideas

Happy Labor Day!

I hope you are enjoying your lovely day off today… I’m still in Colorado so I know I am 🙂

Today’s song is by Sara Bareilles, and it’s lovely. 

 My favorite lines:

“No Ordianry wings I need, the sky itself will carry me back to you. THe things I dream that I could do, I’d open up the moon for you…”

 

“I’d settle for an honest mistake in the name of One Sweet Love…”

One Sweet Love

Just about the time the shadows call

I undress my mind and dare you to follow

Paint a portrait of my mystery

Only close my eyes and you are here with me

A nameless face to think I see

To sit and watch the waves with me till they’re gone

A heart I’d swear I’d recognize is made out of

My own devices….

Could I be wrong?

The time that I’ve taken

I pray is not wasted

Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?

 

Sleepless nights you creep inside of me

Paint your shadows on the breath that we share

You take more than just my sanity

You take my reason not to care.

No ordinary wings I’ll need

The sky itself will carry me back to you

The things I dream that I can do I’ll open up

The moon for you

Just come down soon

The time that I’ve taken

I pray is not wasted

Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?

Ready and waiting for a heart worth the breaking

But I’d settle for an honest mistake in the name of

One sweet love.

 

Savor the sorrow to soften the pain 

sip on the southern rain

As I do, I don’t look don’t touch don’t do anything

But hope that there is a you.

 

The earth that is the space between,

I’d banish it from under me…to get to you.

Your unexpected love provides my solitary’s suicide…

oh I wish I knew

 

The time that I’ve taken

I pray is not wasted

Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?

Ready and waiting for a heart worth the breaking

But I’d settle for an honest mistake in the name of

One sweet love.

 


Stunning isn’t it? Ms. Bareilles has such an amazing voice. Love it!
