Lyrics

The Sweetest Tea

Written By: Ben Ashley

THE SWEETEST TEA

YOU WANT A JEWEL THIEF FOR YOUR EMPTY CROWN
WANT AN AUTUMN MOON WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN
YOU WANT THE STEPPING STONES FIRMLY IN THEIR PLACE
AND A GENTLE GLIDE ON YOUR FALL GRACE, BUT…

YOUR LOVE, YOUR LOVE
IS THE SWEETEST TEA
IT’S GOT ME DOWN ON MY KNEES
BEGGING PLEASE

YOU CAN POISON ME WITH A SUBTLE GLARE
TURN MY MIND TO STONE WITH A MASON’S FLAIR
YOU CAN FLEECE ME CLEAN LIKE AN EASY MARK
OR MAKE THAT LOVING YOU IS A DYING ART, BUT…

CHORUS

MIDDLE EIGHT

YOU CAN SAY THAT LOVE IS A PRISON CELL
ONLY WHEN YOU ARRIVE, FIND YOUR JAILOR SPELLED
OR BE A VAGABOND ON ITALIAN COASTS
FINDING THAT LONELINESS, LONLINESS IS WHAT YOU FEAR THE MOST, BUT…

CHORUS

-BEN ASHLEY
