Lyrics

Sweet Inspiration (Song for Greg)

Sweet inspiration, don?t leave now
This lonely life is bringing me down
Sweet inspiration, send me rain
After rain things always grow again
Sweet inspiration, please don?t hide
Dreams are getting so hard to find

I was young and restless
I fell in love by the sea
Ill-destined passion turned my life into a tragedy
Fate can be fickle with the cards she deals
I can still hear you say, ?Time heals?
But I know time steals.

Sweet inspiration, please don?t hide
Dreams are getting so hard to find
Sweet inspiration, send me rain
After rain things always grow again

In my heart I have a hope
A love that can survive
Life goes on but it sure gets hard
For the ones who are sacrificed
Ruthlessly ripping dreams and hearts apart
Blink your eye, suddenly you find you are
On the other side

And I wish I could touch
You know how much you mean to me
And though you think you still love me for who I am
Not how I used to be

Sweet inspiration, please don?t hide
Dreams are getting so hard to find
Sweet inspiration, send me rain
After rain things always grow again
Sweet inspiration, please don?t hide
Dreams are getting so hard to find

Set me free ? Sweet inspiration
