09. How Sweet It Is

Nightlights
by Jimmy Needham



 

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were / I needed someone to understand my ups and downs and there you were / With sweet love and devotion / Deeply touching my emotion / I want to stop and thank you baby / I want to stop and thank you baby // Oh yes, how sweet it is to be loved by you / Feels so fine / How sweet it is to be loved by you // I close my eyes at night / Wondering where would I be without you in my life / Everything I did was just a bore / Everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before / But you brighten up for me all of my days / With a love so sweet in so many ways / I want to stop and thank you baby / I want to stop and thank you baby // Oh yes, how sweet it is to be loved by you / Like sugar sometimes /How sweet it is to be loved by you // You were better for me than I was for myself / For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else / I want to stop and thank you baby / I want to stop and thank you baby // How sweet it is to be loved by you / My honey from the bee / How sweet it is to be loved by you / How sweet it is to be loved by you

Behind the Song:
"I have wanted to record this song for a VERY long time. It is, in my opinion, one of the greatest pop songs ever written and Iím honored to have it on my record. We tried to be true to the song in the arrangement while throwing in as much soul as we could." - Jimmy Needham
