lyrics

Sweet Weakness

You rolled into town selling snake oil and love
Oh, I bought it and I drank it by the spoonful, mm hmm
I hung my hope upon your words and on that crooked smile
Believing you could cure my heart of every ill

CHORUS:
My sweet weakness
I don't think I'll ever be immune
How tenderly you break my heart again
Without ever meaning to

You read me poems about a riverbed and you read me a story
about a man who asked a girl to marry and she said yes
The man fell asleep in some orchard, and she watched him
Knowing she'd never love another again

CHORUS

It's not that I just need someone, oh I can be alone and happy
I can be alone and happy, I can be alone
You're in my blood, you're in my skin
It's you alone that I am missing, you alone that I am missing
I'm missing you alone

So if I am your weakness, if you still think of me each night
It's not too late for us to take a walk together sometime
And if you asked me to take you back, if you asked me anything
I don't think I'd hold out too long to answer

CHORUS
