Sara Bareilles – One Sweet Love lyrics

Just about the time the shadows call
I undress my mind and dare you to follow
Paint a portrait of my mystery
Only close my eyes and you are here with me
A nameless face to think I see
To sit and watch the waves with me till they're gone
A heart I'd swear I'd recognize is made out of
My own devices....
Could I be wrong?

[Chorus:]
The time that I've taken
I pray is not wasted
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?

Sleepless nights you creep inside of me
Paint your shadows on the breath that we share
You take more than just my sanity
You take my reason not to care.
No ordinary wings I'll need
The sky itself will carry me back to you
The things I dream that I can do I'll open up
The moon for you
Just come down soon

[Chorus:]
The time that I've taken
I pray is not wasted
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?
Ready and waiting for a heart worth the breaking
But I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
One sweet love.

Savor the sorrow to soften the pain sip on
The southern rain
As I do, I don't look don't touch don't do anything
But hope that there is a you.

The earth that is the space between,
I'd banish it from under me... To get to you.
Your unexpected love provides my solitary's
Suicide... Oh I wish I knew

[Chorus:]
The time that I've taken
I pray is not wasted
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?
Ready and waiting for a heart worth the breaking
But I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
One sweet love.

    I think this song is about being ready to love that one person with all of what you've got. Also about daydreaming what could be between her and the person she would love. It seems that even though she hasn't discovered who this person could be, she imagines that to give her all to that person and that of love. :) I love how she is able to portray this in her song. I don't understand why isn't as famous as all those mainstream artists out there.

    She makes up a "perfect" man who she wishes that would come but she worries that she has already found the only love she will ever have. For me, the man was not made up and I relate to this song in that I feel sorrow for not staying with him. Now that he's been gone for a year and a half, I am realizing that he was my best friend and my love. Maybe even my one sweet love. I'd do anything to get him back sometimes.
