"Those Sweet Words" as written by and Julian/alexander....
What did you say
I know I saw you saying it
My ears won't stop ringing
Long enough to hear
Those sweet words
What did you say

And now the day
The hour hand has spun
Before the night is done
I just have to hear
Those sweet words
Spoken like a melody

All your love
Is a lost balloon
Rising up through the afternoon
'Til it could fit on the head of a pin

Come on in
Did you have a hard time sleeping
'Cause a heavy moon was keeping you awake
And all I know is I'm just glad to see you again

See my love
Like a lost balloon
Rising up through the afternoon
And then you appear

What did you say
I know I saw you saying it
My ears won't stop ringing
Long enough to hear
Those sweet words
And your simple melody

I just have to hear
Your sweet words
Spoken like a melody
I just want to hear
Those sweet words

    General Commenti was watching this stupid movie called alex and emma. i dont know how i got through to the end of it... but i did. and as soon as the credits popped up i heard this amazing song and amazing voice. it sounded so familiar, i thought to myself... this sounds like norah jones! i looked it up, and it turned out it was her! i think this is one of the best songs on her new album. hope she comes out with it. just an amazing voice!

    General CommentCome on! one of the greatest songs by Norah ever.. cant believe there are only a few comments

    anyway,

    the song is pretty straight forward.. a feel good love song where "those sweet words" were said. The lyrics on these song are so sweet, it fits the melody just right. Makes me fall in love everytime i hear it.
