Aretha Franklin – Sweet Bitter Love lyrics

I talked to you today, we've loved each other
For so long in that special way
And if circumstances should keep us apart
I just want you to know
That you will remain forever here in my heart

Sweet, sweet bitter love
The taste still lingers, going through my helpless fingers
You slipped away, ooh, yes you did

Sweet, sweet bitter love, what joy you told me
What pain you didn't mean to but you brought me
And so sure, baby and so sure to stay

Our magic dreams have lost their spells
And where there, where there was hope
Oh, there's an, an empty shell

Oh, sweet, na na na, na na na, na na, bitter love
Why have you awaken and then forsaken
A trusting heart like mine

My magic, my magic dreams
They've all, they've all, all lost their spells
And where there, where I had a little bit of hope
Yes sir, there is, oh look at me now, there is an empty shell

Oh, sweet, na na na, na na na, na na, bitter love
Why have you awakened and then
And then and then and then and then you know, you have forsaken
A trusting heart, yeah like mine, a trusting heart like mine
I love you boy, yes I do, like mine
