Roberta Flack — Sweet Bitter Love lyrics

Sweet, sweet bitter love
The taste still lingers
Though through my helpless fingers
You slipped away

Sweet, sweet bitter love
What joy you brought me
And what pain you taught me
And so short a stay

My magic dreams
Have lost their spell
Where there was hope
There's just an empty shell

Sweet, sweet bitter love
Why have you awakened
And then forsaken
A trusting heart like mine?

My magic dreams
Have lost their spell
And where there was hope
There's just an empty shell

Sweet, sweet bitter love
What joy, what joy you brought me
And what pain you taught me
So short a stay

Sweet bitter love
Why, why have you awakened
And then forsaken
A trusting heart, a trusting heart like mine?
