Lyrics

Sugar: Lyrics

she was a spring rain on the cigarette studded pavement

she was a zydeco in the arms of a tatooed stranger

she was lost and Jesus would have loved her

if he’d a known all the secrets she hold

 

she was a looker paying hard for a little bit of comfort

she was a late night cheek to cheek with the neon signs

just a fantasy in a subway window frame

don’t make her wrong just adrift and full of shame

 

sugar, saying it don’t make it so

sugar, do it quick and then let go

sugar, call it love or what you know

sugar,  alive but never not broken

 

she was a daddy’s girl but daddy was a no good cuss

she tried to make it right but her choices just weren’t good enough

she caught a rough ride just to see where it would go

too young to hide or to know what she don’t know

 

she coulda been a free bird flying across a great divide

damned if she do but you know she do all right

wasn’t here to fly while she had so much fight in her

always looking up but with the luck of a sinner

 

sugar, saying it don’t make it so

sugar, do it quick and then let go

sugar, call it love or what you know

sugar,  alive but never not broken
