The Sweetest Thing

This song is by Lauryn Hill.

The sweetest thing I've ever known
Was like a kiss on the collar bone
The soft caress of happiness
The way you walk, your style of dress
I wish I didn't get so weak
Ooh baby, just to hear you speak
Makes me argue just to see
How much you're in love with me

See, like a queen, a queen upon her throne
It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I've known
It was the sweet, sweet, sweetest thing I've known

I get mad when you walk away
So I tell you leave when I mean stay
Warm as the sun dipped in black
Fingertips on small of my back
More valuable than all I own
Like your precious, precious, precious, precious baby dark skin tone
It was the sweet, the sweetest thing I've known
Was the

I... I try to explain
(I can't explain it, I can't explain it)
I... but baby it's in vain

Sneaking on my mother's phone
The touch that makes me think I'm grown
Sweet prince of the ghetto
Your kisses taste like Armaretto
Intoxicating (intoxicating), ooh, so intoxicating (intoxicating)
How sad, how sad that all things come to an end
But then again
I, I'm not alone

It was the sweet, sweetest thing I've known
It was the sweet, sweetest thing I've known

I... sometimes watch you in your sleep
I... excuse me if I get too deep
It was the sweet, sweetest thing I've known
