John Popper & The Duskray Troubadours – Something Sweet lyrics

Play me something sweet, something with a beat that takes my cares away
Something real and true, something bright or blue and get me through this dark and stormy day
Cover me in sunlight with every note you play
Play me something sweet, something with a beat and I will be ok
Make it something slow, something we all know but never heard before
Make us feel alright whether day or night, when nothing seems to mean much anymore
Older than the ocean but younger than the shore
Make it something real, real and right and let my spirit soar
I never worked so hard just to make ends meet
And 2nd Avenue seems like a dead-end street
I don't know anyone who ain't struggling nowadays
Too many good folks hurting bad in way too many ways

Play me something sweet, something strong that will not break or bend
Something that could carry me along on days when friends can't even help a friend
Let the song inside you rise and grow and then play me something sweet
And your sweet song will help me smile again
