Sweetness And Light

This song is by Bill Mallonee and appears on the album Locket Full Of Moonlight (2002).

Her wings are as soft as roses
And as you might have guessed
Although they're made of roses
They are fragile none the less
See I handed you a book
And that book was my life
As I recall that moment
It was all such sweetness and light
You came from California
By way of tupelo
Yes there were some others before ya you said
Ah but you don't need to know
So I fell into an ocean
But it was her sea green eyes
As I recall I was calling
It was all such sweetness and light
I was moved more by her tears
Than I ever was a sermon
Got more from every tender kiss
Than I ever got from book learning
Cannot say why the tides changed
Maybe I held on too tight
But for a while I was a child
And it was all such sweetness and light
She told her friends I'd come to her on some noble steed
Ah but it wasn't anything like that
Maybe empty-handed and full of need
Ah but at least good for a laugh
Love makes you better than you really are
Sometimes it happens overnight
Come with the sunrise
You are all sweetness and light
Never handed you a single word
When you set foot on that leaving coach
Yeah it's hard to say I'll miss you girl
With a lump in your throat
Me well I'm still swimming for shore
In those sea green eyes
But I recall once before when I was all
I recall once before when I was all
I remember once before
When it was all such sweetness and light
Sweetness and light
