Lucinda Williams - Sweet Side lyrics

rate me

You run yourself ragged tryin' to be strong

You feel bad when you done nothin' wrong

Love got all confused with anger and pride

So much abuse on such a little child

Someone you trusted told you to shut up

Now there's a pain in your gut that you can't get rid of

No one heard your screams when you were nine

When bad dreams filled your summertime

So you don't always show your sweet side ...

You're tough as steel and you keep your chin up

You don't ever feel like you're good enough

You've had the blues ever since you were six

Your little tennis shoes and your pick-up sticks

You were screamed at and kicked over and over

Now you always feel sick and you can't keep a lover

Every Christmas there were presents to unwrap

But the things you witnessed when you were five and a half

So you don't always show your sweet side ...

Someone deserted you, the damage is done

Now you don't deserve to be loved by no one

Hands that would feed you when you were two

Were the same hands that beat you black and blue

You get defensive at every turn

You're overly sensitive and overly concerned

Few precious memories no lullabies

Hollowed out centuries of lies

So you don't always show your sweet side ...

I've seen you in the kitchen cookin' me supper

I listened to you bitchin' I watched you suffer

I still love you baby 'cause I know you

Don't mean to do the cruel things you do

I've seen you sewin' buttons on your shirt

I've seen you throwin' up when your stomach hurt

I'll stick by you baby through thick and thin

No matter what kind of shape you're in

'Cause I've seen your sweet side ...
