Sweet Bitter Love
Marcia Griffiths Lyrics

I talked to you today
We've loved each other for so long
In that special way

And if circumstances should keep us apart
I just want you to know that
You will remain forever here in my heart

Sweet, sweet bitter love
The taste still lingers
Going through my helpless fingers
You slipped away, ooh, yes you did

Sweet, sweet bitter love
What joy you told me
What pain you didn't mean to
But you brought me
And so sure, baby and so sure to stay

Our magic dreams have lost their spells
And where there, where there was hope
Oh, there's an, an empty shell

Oh, sweet
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, bitter love
Why have you awaken and then forsaken
A trusting heart like mine?

My magic, my magic dreams
They've all, they've all, all lost their spells
And where there where I had a little bit of hope
Yes sir, there is, oh look at me now
There is an empty shell

Oh, sweet
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, bitter love
Why have you awakened and then
And then, and then, and then
And then you know, you have forsaken
A trusting heart, yeah like mine?

A trusting heart like mine
I love you boy, yes I do, like mine

Thank you Marcia! I love this song, it is so heart felt. I saw you at the Santa Monica Pier Concert. What a performer and spiritual person you are. Bob Marley"s spirit was definitely there!

Nice up the dance ,sweet up the dance. Lovers rock 1974 before the genre existed. Reggae is not only about Rastafari , roots ,culture smoking herb and repatriation You have plenty likkle irie love tune like this. Marcia was and is a stellar talent before during and after Bob Marley.
