"Sweet Little Thing" as written by and Benjamin Nichols....
Sweet little thing
A constant in my thoughts
Sweet little thing
Somehow we both got lost
And you tell me that I can't change
And you say I'm such a boy

Sweet little thing
Your friends say I'm no good
Sweet little thing
They never understood
The way I'd stay up all night
The way I'd tremble in your arms

A kiss'll make you close your eyes
A kiss won't make you stay
Please don't walk away
Please don't walk away
I like to know you're there
Though there's nothing left to say
Please don't walk away
Please don't walk away

Sweet little thing
Maybe I ain't no good
Sweet little thing
I ain't done what I should
I let'em think what they want
But all I want is you

A kiss'll make you close your eyes
A kiss won't make you stay
Please don't walk away
Please don't walk away
I like to know you're there
Though there's nothing left to say
Please don't walk away
Please don't walk away

A kiss'll make you close your eyes
A kiss won't make you stay
A kiss'll make you close your eyes
A kiss won't make you stay
Sweet Little Thing
A kiss'll make you close your eyes
A kiss won't make you stay
A kiss'll make you close your eyes
A kiss won't make you stay
Sweet Little Thing

    General CommentThis is an amazing song.

    It's about a man who only realizes his dependence on the woman in his life once she has had enough of his shit and decides to leave.

    Great song.

    General Commentit is "a kiss will make you close your eyes, but a kiss won't make you stay." though their lyrics are hard to decipher sometimes.

    i absolutely love lucero's 'despair music.' this one seems to be about a guy who is so dependent on this girl that she doesn't quite understand it, but he doesn't care what anyone else thinks.
