lyrics

You Gave Me Sugar

I got but nothing but love for you baby,
You’ve been as sweet as can be.
But in the end all this sunshine and flowers
They really don’t do it for me.

You gave me sugar; I wanted spice.
That kind love is a little too nice.
I pretended it all would work out in the end,
But I know now I can’t pay the price.
You gave me sugar -- nothing but sugar – I wanted spice.

I know people will tell me I’m crazy
For letting go of your love,
But in the end it’s a world full of flavor
And I’m just not getting enough.

You gave me sugar; I wanted spice.
That kind love is a little too nice.
I pretended it all would work out in the end,
But I know now I can’t pay the price.
You gave me sugar -- nothing but sugar – I wanted spice.

Like a kid at a party
Who’s had too much ice cream and cake,
After a while of nothing but smiles
There was only so much I could take.

Oh, I know someone’s out there for you, girl,
Who wants what you’ve got to give,
But in the end time goes by much too fast
Not to live the way I want to live.

You gave me sugar; I wanted spice.
That kind love is a little too nice.
I pretended it all would work out in the end,
But I know now I can’t pay the price.
You gave me sugar -- nothing but sugar – I wanted spice.
