Sweet pear, sweet pear
Those who say they love you would never dare
I`ll watch out for you
I`ll always be there
In the hour of distress you need not fear

In all the world there`s only one true love
And finding it`s hard enough
I bless whatever`s in the sky above
For bringing you to me

But there`s a void without your kiss
I wake on the precipice above the abyss
And though the touch of your lips these fears dismiss
Make no mistake there is an ache I have to live with

Was my grip too lose, my grip too strong
That made you want to run away
And now you`re back where I pretend you belong
I wonder every night and day
How long

I swear this is my prayer
`Til we`re burned and scattered in the atmosphere
Or lost in the world across a crowded room
I am your stupid lover, your wretched groom
