My Sweet Girl
written by John Hiatt

My sweet girl with you eyes so bright
Don't leave me in the dark tonight
The sun's turned down, the moon is low
And I know secrets you don't know

Do you hear the wind whispering
"you're the one I love"
The summer breeze tells the trees
I'm the one, because
You're my sweet girl

Hold me now in this sweet life
I will take you for my wife
We can walk the aisle in this city park
And I will offer you my heart

Married by a firefly
They're coming back, you know
And I'm the man who knows he can
Provide an afterglow
For you, my sweet girl
Cause you're my sweet girl

Do, do, do....

My sweet girl, do you know you are
My lovely dream, my little star
In a blanket made of earth and sky
Curled up with my sweetie pie

The love we make, it merely takes
Our breath out of the air
We kiss and then we breath again
The wind blows through your hair
It's whispering, "you're my sweet girl"
Can you hear it? it's saying, "you're my sweet girl"
You're my sweet girl

Do, do, do...
