Sweetness And Light[+]

tabbed by N

D
Jennifer sits and cries in the dark

And dreams about dreaming and waits for the spark
   Bm                   Em                    A
Of anything that will remind her of anything else again
      D                        G
She remembers the day that she drove him away
        D                  G
How she hated him then but loves him today
        Bm                     Em
And she wonders what she would say to him now
A
   It doesn't matter anyway

[Chorus]
G             D
Sweetness and light
G             D
Sweetness and light
G
Why can't it allways be sweetness and light


[Verse]
Jennifer writes in her journal, she says
"He's been calling me over and over again
And every time I pick up the phone
He says nothing
She can't remember the pain,
She can't remember the kicks
Just a Stevie Wonder song from 1976
And they say you should learn from your past mistakes
She says, "That's easy for you to say" (ch)

[Chorus]
Sweetness and light
Sweetness and light
Why can't it allways be sweetness and light

[Bridge]
              G          D
And she says "Why do you call me ?
G          D
Why do you write me ?
G           D       A
Why are you always around
G           G
What do you want from me?
G         D
What do I have for you?
G             D         A
Why don't you leave me alone?"

[Verse]
Jennifer writes in her journal, she says
"He's been calling me over and over again
And I put on a record and turn up the sound
And close my eyes until the noise goes down
And the phone rings over and over again
Over and over and over again"
And she picks it up on the 20th ring
And says "don't fuck with me, please don't fuck with me."

[Chorus]
Sweetness and light
Sweetness and light
Why can't it allways be sweetness and light
