One Sweet Day

Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men

*

Sorry I never told you

All I wanted to say

Now it’s too late to hold you

‘Cause you’ve flown away

So far away

Never had I imagined

Living without your smile

Feeling and knowing you hear me

It keeps me alive

Alive

And I know you’re shining down on me from heaven

Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way

And I know eventually we’ll be together

So cruel (U2)

So cruel

U2

 

We crossed the line

Who pushed who over?

It doesn’t matter to you

It matters to me

We’re cut adrift

We’re still floating

I’m only hanging on

To watch you go down

My love

I disappeared in you

You disappeared from me

I gave you everything you ever wanted

It wasn’t what you wanted

The men who love you, you hate the most

They pass through you like a ghost

They look for you, but your spirit is in the air

Baby, you’re nowhere

 

Oh…love…

You say in love there are no rules

Oh…love…

Sweetheart,

You’re so cruel

Desperation is a tender trap

It gets you every time

You put your lips to her lips

To stop the lie

 

Her skin is pale like God’s only dove

Screams like an angel for your love

Then she makes you watch her from above

And you need her like a drug

Oh…love…

You say in love there are no rules

Oh…love…

Sweetheart,

You’re so cruel

 

She wears my love like a see-through dress

Her lips say one thing

Her movements something else

Oh love, like a screaming flower

Love…dying every hour…love

You don’t know if it’s fear or desire

Danger the drug that takes you higher

Head in heaven, fingers in the mire

 

Her heart is racing, you can’t keep up

The night is bleeding like a cut

Between the horses of love and lust

We are trampled underfoot

Oh…love… You say in love there are no rules

Oh…love…

Sweetheart,

You’re so cruel

Oh…love…

To stay with you I’d be a fool

Sweetheart

You’re so cruel

She

[Notting Hill, film]

She

May be the face I can’t forget

The trace of pleasure or regret

May be my treasure or the price I have to pay

She

May be the song that summer sings

May be the chill that autumn brings

May be a hundred different things

Within the measure of a day

She

May be the beauty or the beast

May be the famine or the feast

May turn each day into a heaven or a hell

She may be the mirror of my dreams

The smile reflected in a stream

She may not be what she may seem

Inside her shell

She

Who always seems so happy in a crowd

Whose eyes can be so private and so proud

No one’s allowed to see them when they cry

She

May be the love that cannot hope to last

May come to me from shadows of the past

That I’ll remember till the day I die

She

May be the reason I survive

The why and wherefore I’m alive

The one I’ll care for through the rough in ready years

Me

I’ll take her laughter and her tears

And make them all my souvenirs

For where she goes I’ve got to be

The meaning of my life is

She

She, oh she she
