Song Lyric Sunday 12/31/17 – sugar/candy

For Helen’s prompt for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday she chose sugar/candy. I must admit that it had me a little stumped. I was having trouble pulling one out of my grey matter. As soon as I did some searching I almost slapped myself for not thinking of this one without the help of algorithmic assistance. I went back to the mid 1980’s for this week’s selection, so I present my choice. Here is Lips Like Sugar from Echo & The Bunnymen.

 

 

She floats like a swan
Grace on the water
Lips like sugar
Lips like sugar
Just when you think you’ve caught her
She glides across the water
She calls for you tonight
To share this moonlight

You’ll flow down her river
She’ll ask you and you’ll give her
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses

She knows what she knows
I know what she’s thinking
Sugar kisses
Sugar kisses
Just when you think she’s yours
She’s flown to other shores
To laugh at how you break
And melt into this lake

You’ll flow down her river
But you’ll never give her
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses

She’ll be my mirror
Reflect what I am
A loser and a winner
The king of siam
And my siamese twin
Alone on the river
Mirror kisses
Mirror kisses

Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses

  1. As soon as I saw the post’s title, I immediately said to myself, “Please let it be Lips Like Sugar”. You never disappoint:-) One of my all time favourites. The other one that popped into my head just now was I Want Candy, by Bow Wow Wow–another 80s gem by a band that was also produced by Malcolm McLaren. Happy New Year!
