Lyrics

Sweeter For Me - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

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
