Jimmy Eat World – Sweetness lyrics

If you're listening, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
Sing it back, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
String from your tether unwinds
(String from your tether unwinds) whoa oh, whoa oh
Up and outward to bind
(Up and outward to bind) whoa oh, whoa oh

I was spinning free, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
With a little sweet and simple numbing me.

Are you listening? Whoa oh oh oh oh oh
Sing it back, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
So tell me what do I need
(tell me what do I need) whoa oh, whoa oh
When words lose their meaning
(When words lose their meaning) whoa oh, whoa oh

I was spinning free, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
With a little sweet and simple numbing me.
Yeah, stumble till you crawl, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
Sinking into sweet uncertainty

(Are you listening? Are you listening?)

If you're listening, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
If you're listening, are you listening?
Sing it back, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
If you're listening, are you listening?
I'm still running away
(I'm still running away) whoa oh, whoa oh
Won't play your hide and seek game
(your hide and seek game) whoa oh, whoa oh

I was spinning free, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
With a little sweet and simple numbing me.
What a dizzy dance, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
This sweetness will not be concerned with me.
No the sweetness will not be concerned with me.
No the sweetness will not be concerned with me.
