We're back there and the heartbreak came
Yeah it hit me pretty hard
I waved hello and goodbye
to the ghosts on the boulevard

Well oh, oh my baby
Your so sweet it makes me cry
well oh, oh my baby
your so sweet it makes me cry

Your so sweet, your so sweet
your so sweet, i wanna cry

la,la,la,la,la
la,la,la,la,la

la,la,la,la,la,
la,la,la,la,la

well i dealt with the dog face hunny
just try to sympathize
well he turned and looked at me
with his cold debaler, red, dry clean eyes

oh, oh my baby
your so sweet it makes me cry
well oh, oh my baby
your so sweet it makes me cry

your so sweet, your so sweet
your so sweet, i wanna cry

la,la,la,la,la
la,la,la,la,la

la,la,la,la,la
la,la,la,la,la

your from my love
I is leavin
check it out
not coming back

the downtown trains
are teamin
screamin
all down the track

There is a terrible taste
always torn from the chemicals
he's gonna split his blood
all over the whole wide world

your so sweet, your so sweet
your so sweet, i wanna cry

la,la,la,la,la
la,la,la,la,la
la,la,la,la,la
la,la,la,la,la

la,la,la,la,la
la,la,la,la,la
la,la,la,

la,la,la,la,la
la,la,la,la,la

    General Commentsome of the lyrics are incorrect i think..

    shouldnt it be -

    Well back there when the heartbreak came
    Yeah it hit me pretty hard
    I waved hello and goodbye
    to the ghosts on the boulevard

    Well oh, oh my baby
    You´re so sweet it makes me cry
    well oh, oh my baby
    you´re so sweet it makes me cry

    You´re so sweet, you´re so sweet
    you´re so sweet, i wanna cry

    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la

    la,la,la,la,la,
    la,la,la,la,la

    well locked up with the dog please honey
    just try to sympathize
    well he turned and looked at me
    with his cold debaler, red, dry clean eyes

    oh my baby
    you´re so sweet it makes me cry
    well oh, oh my baby
    you´re so sweet it makes me cry

    you´re so sweet, you´re so sweet
    you´re so sweet, i wanna cry

    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la

    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la

    your former lover is leaving
    check him out
    not coming back

    the downtown trains
    have taken his screaming
    all down the track

    There is a terrible taste
    on his tounge from the chemicals
    he's gonna split his blood
    all over the dull white walls

    you´re so sweet, you´re so sweet
    you´re so sweet, i wanna cry

    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la

    and more la´s

    or am i hearing it wrong? please let me know, it is frustrating me..

    General Commentthis is one of my favourite songs and i still cannot fully work out its meaning.my best bet is that its meaning is a lot darker than a standard love song. something to do with someone being supposedly "so sweet"but having this capacity to completely and permanently psychologically mess up people they have relationships with. he wants to cry and the "former lover" committed suicide. this may be complete bull but its the way i understand it.

    General CommentActually, i think the lyrics are


    We're back there and the heartbreak came
    Yeah it hit me pretty hard
    I waved hello and goodbye
    to the ghosts on the boulevard

    Well oh, oh my baby
    You're so sweet it makes me cry
    well oh, oh my baby
    you're so sweet it makes me cry

    You're so sweet, you're so sweet
    you're so sweet, I wanna cry

    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la

    la,la,la,la,la,
    la,la,la,la,la

    well I dealt with the dope fiends hunny
    just trying to sympathize
    well he turned and looked at me
    with his cold, dead, blood-red, drag queen eyes

    oh, oh my baby
    you're so sweet it makes me cry
    well oh, oh my baby
    you're so sweet it makes me cry

    you're so sweet, you're so sweet
    you're so sweet, I wanna cry

    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la

    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la

    your former lover
    is leaving
    checkin' out
    not coming back

    the downtown trains
    have taken him
    screaming
    all down the track

    There is a terrible taste
    on his tongue from the chemicals
    he's gonna spit his blood
    all over the dope white walls

    you're so sweet, you're so sweet
    you're so sweet, i wanna cry

    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la

    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,

    la,la,la,la,la
    la,la,la,la,la

    I think he's talking to girl, who he loves but she's still part of her druggie ex-boyfriend's life and he used to be part of that crowd and he's tried to help the guy too but its no use. I think he is trying to help her see that the druggie guy is too far gone, that no one can help him, and he's in so deep that he won't come out, his addiction is going to kill him. and as much as she wants to think otherwise, or give the guy a sexond chance, she'll just keep getting hurt. i think the "you're so sweet i wanna cry" is him talking about how she's put up with so much and he loves how caring she is but it makes him want to cry because he knows its hurting her to keep trying to help her former lover.

    im horrible at this stuff, but thats kind of what i got out of it.

    General CommentThis is a great song, one of the best from the OC soundtracks.

    I took it as his relationship with drugs and possibly a girl that influences him away from drugs.
