Sugar (great writing)

September 22, 2010

This song stopped me in my tracks in a restaurant tonight. At first I thought it was Brett Dennen, but no. It’s Garrett Gue with Sugar. Some great writing and the tune to match. Here it is. Lyrics follow.

Well she feels like sugar in the evening
Sugar in the morning time
And when the sun’s shining bright she’ll get that feeling
A little more sugar might do just fine
I’m talking ice cream, cinnamon rolls, an oreo shake and a diet coke
‘Cus you know you gotta watch your figure
I’m talking brown eyes, a cute little nose, a smile that shines like the summer’s snow
If this could happen

But I know it never could
Like I know she would taste so good
Until the flavor fades away

Well she stays up late
And wakes up early
Maybe a strawberry swirly inbetween
‘Cus everybody knows that sleep is surely overrated when you’re on caffeine

But I think this untrue
Like I think I’m just a fool
And the flavor fades away, fades away
Like a fingerpaint that was left out in the rain
It fades away
Fades away, fades away
Like a happy smile as the clouds chase it away
It fades away, fades away
It fades away

And though it never could
Believe me when I say I would
But I never really figured how to handle goodbyes too good

She fades away, fades away
Fades away, fades away
Like a fleeting thought of peaceful destinations
Fades away
Fades away, fades away
On a westbound train with my hopes and expectations
She fades away, fades away
