Sweeter for Me Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Red telephone sitting by my bed practically bore your name
Lying alone in the twilight zone waiting for your call to come in
Hadn't been for the kid who was sleeping upstairs
You'd have found me well on my way on that midnight plane to L.A

You suffered sweeter for me
Than anyone I've ever known

I dared to look into the years, would you still have your wife?
I dared to peer through my tears, could we ever have a life?
Even thought I was pregnant by you but I didn't care
I just talked to my son, would he mind another one?

You suffered sweeter for me
Than anyone I've ever known

Once more the mist rolls to the sea like a hundred times we've known
Trees are faded and the clouds have stopped where the wind had blown
How I dread when the evening comes and I cannot be
What you want me to be when you are next to me

How silent you are as the veils come down before my eyes
Soft and reserved as you move away donning your disguise
While every folk song that I ever knew once more comes true
And loves grows old and waxes cold

You suffered sweeter for me
Than anyone I've ever known

Just one favor of you, my love if I should die today
Take me down to where the hills meet the sea on a stormy day
Ride a ridge on a snow white horse and throw my ashes away
To the wind and the sand where my song began

You suffered sweeter for me
Than anyone I've ever known
