One Sweet Love
by Sara Bareilles



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?

Time that I've taken
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
It 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 (The time that I've taken)
A pray is not wasted (Pray is not wasted)
Have I already tasted my piece of
One sweet love?
Ready and waiting (Ready and waiting)
For a heart worth the breaking (heart worth the breaking)
I'd settle for an honest mistake, 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

Time that I've taken
A pray is not wasted
Have I already tasted my piece of
One sweet love?
Ready and waiting (Ready and waiting)
For a heart worth the breaking (heart worth the breaking)
But I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
One sweet love

One sweet love
