every night stopping
it's raining
scary oh
so rage you again
your
on fire
i one decide to run out
oh they got off you did
wonder where you say you knew

sugar ain't poison
but sugar will kill you
it's too much of a good thing
maybe not so

i wasn't somebody
no hand out
i give you
i stare back and
gonna let you out
i wonder what you
all of sad you knew

sugar ain't poison
but sugar will kill you
too much of a good thing
maybe not so

you did what you thought was fitting baby
dreams about oh what is sunning you
oh baby
i hung up my package
never no never you knew

sugar ain't poison
but sugar will kill you
too much of a good thing
maybe not so sweet

    General CommentI got to hear sugar will this year and this was the version i heard posted below and all i have to say is amazing and the lyrics ever one can relate to..i think they are about some1 getting so caught up in love that sometimes too much is poison and who hasn't done that before...or maybe that's just me..but correct me if im wrong about what it means..but that is just what i think it about

    my favorite version is:
    Cigarettes and red red wine
    So spend all night with you
    And talking of myself
    I wonder if you knew

    Sugar ain't poison
    Sugar will kill you
    Too much of a good thing
    Maybe not so sweet

    And I came stumbling in
    Caught you whispering to a friend
    When you call my eyes thought
    And pretending not to see me
    I don't know 'bout myself
    Maybe I'm a little bit crazy
    But still I can't help thinking myself
    That you oh, you knew

    Sugar ain't poison
    Sugar will kill you
    Too much of a good thing
    Maybe not so sweet

    See oh, these two men
    I swear they went through ten bottles just sitting there
    And sweating in summer time
    They looked sick as hell
    And I wondered if I could get there myself
    I bet too late my soul no
    I wonder if I could be there myself
    And I wonder if you knew

    Sugar ain't poison
    Sugar will kill you
    Too much of a good thing
    Maybe not so sweet

    General CommentJudging by the verses id say that my interpretation is wrong, but going by the chorus it seems to me that he could be refering to drugs, they make you feel good, but if you do it too much and reach the point of addiction then you regret ever starting

    basically i think this song exemplifies the phrase "everything in moderation"

    General CommentI'm not sure that either of the posted lyrics are correct, other than the chorus. I have the Golden Gate Park CD with Sugar Will on it, and it starts off differently and has many different verses. Sorry I can't contribute lyrics, but I'm 99.9% sure these are wrong.

    General Commentthis song is about truth...
    sugar = truth (truth about who God is and Who man is)
    when we receive this truth it comes in two parts.
    wisdom and understanding. wisdom comes by way of revel

    General Commentthis song is about truth...
    sugar = truth (truth about who God is and Who man is)
    when we receive this truth it comes in two parts.
    wisdom and understanding. wisdom comes by way of reveation via God in dreams and visions within our spirit.
    understanding comes through our day to day living out the wisdom to create knowledge or truth.

    some peple are greedy they grab all they can get but in the end it brings them nothing but confusion.

    dave is saying being too greedy for Gods truth will bring you a tummy ache. too much is not a good thing to most. heres a sample.
    lets say God loves everyone.
    but the same people who preach this form of truth will also say their going to heaven while 99% of Gods creation will Go To Hell..confusing right! which means what they understand as truth means nothing. and will only bring them death to those ideas they hold as truth.
    a key is a house divided falls. two confusing ideas can only lead to doubt. which isnt truth.

    too much is about stealing truth. antichrists steal Gods truth only to find out they never understood it. they become inraged when others defy their newly found understanding. the "sugar" they consumed is consuming them.

    General CommentHere are the lyrics as best as i could get from the Golden Gate Park Concert cd with Santana:

    so what is it?
    in the middle of this
    came in to save us oh
    red was staining and covering, oh I wonder
    called all this for myself
    wonder if you knew

    sugar ain't poison
    but sugar will kill you
    too much of a good thing
    maybe not so sweet

    what do you think about that?

    I came in, maybe, bit too late
    and stinking, you said of something holy
    and either way to solve this, really matters oh drumming out
    try to find for myself whatever come rain
    empty space, I fell for myself
    I wonder if you knew

    sugar ain't poison
    but sugar will kill you
    too much of a good thing
    maybe not so sweet

    what do you know about that?

    And all of a sudden you were screaming
    came scratching in, love, all of these
    Oh, I thought, must be dreaming
    it's not like you but oh then
    I've done it all by myself
    still it seems surprising, oh then
    broke the wall by myself
    still wonder how you knew

    sugar ain't poison
    but sugar will kill you
    too much of a good thing
    maybe not so sweet


    I think it has to do with relationships. Too much of a good thing maybe not so sweet is realizing that what he thought would make him happy (or make the other person happy) is really not what that person needed.
