I never knew I’d be bitter from the sweet

Listen to this amazing song – http://youtu.be/QhQWND9jKDA

I am truly impressed by this one-hit-wonder song.

Hey lady, you lady
cursing at your life
you’re a discontented mother
and a regimented wife
I ‘ve no doubt 
you dream about the things you never do 
but I wish someone had a talk to me like I wanna talk to you 

Oh, I’ve been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run
Took the hand of a preacher man
and we made love in the sun
But I ran out of places and friendly faces 
Because I had to be free 
I’ve been to paradise but I’ve never been to me

Please lady please lady
don’t just walk away 
Cause I have this need to tell you
why I’m all alone today
I can see so much of me 
still living in your eyes 
won’t you share a part 
of a weary heart that has lived a million lives 

Oh, I’ve been to Nice and the isle of Greece
when I sipped champagne on a yacht
I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo
and showed them what I’ve got
I’ve been undressed by kings
and I’ve seen some things that a woman ain’t s’pose to see 
I’ve been to paradise but I’ve never been to me…

Hey, you know what paradise is? 
It’s a lie 
a fantasy we created about people and places 
as we like them to be
but you know what truth is?
it’s that little baby you’re holding 
and it’s that man you fought with this morning 
the same one you are gonna make love to tonight 
that’s truth that’s love 

Sometimes I’ve been to crying for unborn children 
that might have made me complete 
but I, I took the sweet life 
I never knew I’d be bitter from the sweet 
I spent my life exploring 
the subtle whoring 
that costs too much to be free 
hey lady I’ve been to paradise
but I’ve never been to me…

I’ve been to paradise but I’ve never been to me…

I never knew I’d be bitter from the sweet
