      About "Sweet Pear"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Sweet Pear"

      Sweet pear, sweet pear
      Those who say they love you would never dare
      I`ll watch out for you
      I`ll always be there
      In the hour of distress you need not fear

      In all the world there`s only one true love
      And finding it`s hard enough
      I bless whatever`s in the sky above
      For bringing you to me

      But there`s a void without your kiss
      I wake on the precipice above the abyss
      And though the touch of your lips these fears dismiss
      Make no mistake there is an ache I have to live with

      Was my grip too lose, my grip too strong
      That made you want to run away
      And now you`re back where I pretend you belong
      I wonder every night and day
      How long

      I swear this is my prayer
      `Til we`re burned and scattered in the atmosphere
      Or lost in the world across a crowded room
      I am your stupid lover, your wretched groom
