A taste of sweetness
Let me get one more
A taste of sweetness
When my heart is sore

A taste of sweetness
And I know it ain't right
'Cause a taste of sweetness
Keeps me up at night

My eyes get greener
As I grow older
They used to be more blue

And I feel more alone
The more time I
More time I spend with you

A taste of sweetness
From somebody new
A taste of sweetness
Well it's got me all confused

I need someone to say

Why do you do that?
What you always do
What's the matter with you?

Why do you make your
-self a fool?
Oh, you're making a fool of others too

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, because

Tastes of sweetness
Are so few and far between
That a taste of sweetness
Got me chasing that dream

Ooh ooh ooh, one more time

A taste of sweetness
Let me get one more
'Cause a taste of sweetness
Is an open door
