Sweet pear, sweet pear
Those who say they love you would never dare
I'll watch out for you, I'll always be there
In the hour of you distress, you need not fear

In all the world there's only one true love
And finding it's hard enough
I bless whatever's in the sky above
For bringing you to me

But there's a void without your kiss
I wake on the precipice above the abyss
And though the touch of your lips these fears dismiss
Make no mistake there is an ache I have to live with

Was my grip too loose, my grip too strong
That made you want to run away
And now you're back where I pretend you belong
I wonder every night and day, how long?

I swear this is my prayer
Till we're burned and scattered in the atmosphere
Or lost in the world across a crowded room
I am your stupid lover, your wretched groom

Songwriters
COSTELLO, ELVIS
