Sweeter

The rocks below, the lightning above
Clouds making raindrops while we made love in the sea
Everything was so much sweeter when you shared it all with me
Your lips, the salt in your kiss
Your sundrunk tears reflecting the misty blue
Everything was so much sweeter when I shared it all with –

You were my best thing
You made the world sing
I remember the tune
And you – your peardrop eyes
You candied the skies
You sugared the moon

The star-shot night, your hand on my back
Heads full of light and mouthfuls of Dacquiri (strawberry)
Everything was so much sweeter when you shared it all with me
Two sticks, two names in the sand
While Leonard crooned and wooed his Suzanne anew
Everything was so much sweeter when I shared it all with –

You were my best thing
You made the world sing
I remember the tune
And you – your peardrop eyes
You candied the skies
You sugared the moon

I’ll not leave you with nothing,
No you gave me it all
All those boxes of memory in the hall
The salt of all our tomorrows
The pebble marks on my thigh
The cheek tattoo of the tears from our goodbye

You were my best thing
You made the world sing
I remember the tune
And you – your peardrop eyes
You candied the skies
You sugared the moon
