My Sweet Love and Longest Days Lyrics
06.04.2008 -

LONGEST DAYS

It seems like once upon a time ago
I was where I was supposed to be
My vision was true and my heart was too
There was no end to what I could dream
I walked like a hero into the setting sun
And everyone called out my name
Death to me was just a mystery
Cause I was too busy raisin up Abel and Cain

But nothing lasts forever
Your best efforts donít always pay
Sometimes you get sick
And you wonít get better
Thatís when life is short
Even in its longest days

So you pretend not to notice
That everything has changed
The way that you look
And the friends you once had
So you just keep on acting the same
But deep down in your soul
The fire has no flame
And who knows then which way to go
Life is short even in its longest days

But nothing lasts forever
Your best efforts donít always pay
Sometimes you get sick
And you wonít get better
Thatís when life is short
Even in its longest days

All I got here
Is the rear view mirror
The reflections of where Iíve been
So you tell yourself Iíll be back up on top some day
But you know thereís nothing waiting up there for you anyway

But nothing lasts forever
Your best efforts donít always pay
Sometimes you get sick
And you wonít get better
Thatís when life is short
Even in its longest days

MY SWEET LOVE

You say that you need me
Youíll always believe me
Oh my sweet love
That our love is forever
Weíll always be together
Oh my sweet love

You say youíll always come through
And thereís nothing you wonít do
Oh my sweet love
But Iíve heard all this before
And I canít beg anymore
Oh my sweet love

Youíre the woman who knows exactly what sheís doing
Youíre the girl who ate the apple off the tree
When youíre good itís just crazy, when youíre bad itís too much
Oh my sweet love

You say you never can hurt me
And never desert me
Oh my sweet love
That your words are true
I can depend on you
Oh my sweet love

Then when you get in the wind
And all the storms begin
Oh my sweet love
When youíre sad and dismantled
And all your senses are rattled
Thatís when the rodeo begins

Youíre the woman who knows exactly what sheís doing
Youíre the girl who ate the apple off the tree
When youíre good itís just crazy, when youíre bad itís too much
Oh my sweet love

Sweet love standing at my gate
Oh my sweet love
It sure would feel good to feel good again
Oh my sweet love
