Johnny Rivers – A Taste Of Honey lyrics

Winds may blow o'er the icy sea
I'll take with me the warmth of thee
A taste of honey
A taste much sweeter than wine
I'll leave behind my heart to wear
And may it ever remind you of
A taste of honey
A taste much sweeter than wine
I will return, I will return
I'll come back for the honey and you
He never came back to his love so fair
And so she died dreaming of his kiss
His kiss of honey
A kiss more bitter than wine
I will return, I will return
I'll come back for the honey and you
(I'll come back, I'll come back)
He never came back to his love so fair
And so she died dreaming of his kiss
His kiss of honey
A kiss more bitter than wine
I will return, I will return
I'll come back for the honey and you
(I'll come back, I'll come back)
I'll come back for the honey and you

    Always hated this song (especially the Tijuana Brass version that misses the point totally) until I heard Will Robert Scott sing his version on his early '70s Warner Bros. Album. He's the cowriter of the tune and sings it like he's lived it. The lyrics are pretty straight forward. Two lovers separated, but remembering the joy they gave to each other. Unfortunately they never reunite and the woman dies waiting in vain. Even as she's dying she's holding out for his return... "I will return, I will return". Check out YouTube for Scott's version. Takes on a whole new meaning when you heard him sing it.
