Sweet pea
Apple of my eye
Don't know when and I don't know why
You're the only reason I keep on coming home

Sweet pea
What's all this about
Don't get your way all you do is fuss and pout
You're the only reason I keep on coming home

I like the Rock of Gibraltar
I always seem to falter
And the words just get in the way
Oh I know I'm gonna crumble
I'm trying to stay humble
But I never think before I see

Sweet pea
Keeper of my soul
I know sometimes I'm out of control
You're the only reason I keep on coming
You're the only reason I keep on coming yeah
You're the only reason I keep on coming home

    General CommentI know the AT&T commercial mixed with being a parent may shape my view, but I think this is a father singing about his daughter. My husband calls our youngest sweet pea, and she (10 months old) happens to LOVE this song. We need more love songs to sing to our children.

    General CommentI really like songs like this [The Animals "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", Will Stratton "Katydid", etc.]

    These songs do a good job letting women know that we [men] have flaws and problems and although we might sometimes exclude them and make them feel like we've got everything under control, we always need them to help us.

    Great song.

    General Commenti think it's "i never think before i say," not "see."
