Sade - The Sweetest Gift Lyrics

Quietly while you were asleep
The moon and I were talking
I asked that she'd always keep you protected

She promised you her light
That you so gracefully carry
You bring your light and shine like morning

And then the wind pulls the clouds across the moon
Your light fills the darkest room
And I can see the miracle
That keeps us from falling

She promised all the sweetest gifts
That only the heaven's could bestow
You bring your light and shine like morning

And as you so gracefully give
Her light as long as you live
I'll always remember this moment

    quietly while you were asleep
    the moon and i were talking
    i asked that she'd always keep you protected
    she promised you her light that you so gracefully carry
    you bring your light and shine like morning
    and then the wind pulls the clouds across the moon
    your light fills the darkest room
    and i can see the miracle that keeps us from falling
    she promised
    all the sweetest gifts
    that only the heavens
    could bestow
    you bring your light and shine like morning
    and as you so gracefully give her light as long as you live
    i will always remember
    this moment

  19. Jihano Diamond

    Sade ROCKS

  20. PressCtrlA

    This song is strikingly similar to the instrumental "Fluff" by Black Sabbath from their 1973 Sabbath Bloody Sabbath album. I wouldn't be surprised if the music to this song is a cover of "Fluff". If it is indeed a cover of Fluff, then perhaps somewhere in cyberspace Sade's music producers acknowledge this. Perhaps not. 
    This is not a criticism...merely an observation.
    Sade is a musical Goddess!!

  21. ptinklepoop

    Beautiful song. Thanks FD

  22. Tamarah Ashleigh

    I could cry this song is amazing.

  23. William b. Harrison

    This is a beautiful lullaby. It comforts me to think of the moon gracefully giving my daughter the sweetest gift of light as long as she lives.

  24. Zorn Wyche

    This is beautiful but a bit sad.

  25. BigBirdy100

    Note to everyone. Don't be typing before the song almost changes; it flips to the next song and you lose what you typed. Anyway, love these slow and mellow songs. I love Sade. I saw her in Birmingham, Alabama a long time ago at an outside amphitheater. It was a great concert with great lighting and theatrical presentation of her songs.

  26. Mrs.Spicer

    I said the same thing! My baby is on the way in about 4 weeks and I can't help but cry even more than I did 10 years ago! Im excited to have this song be a part of my son's life.

  27. makuacave1

    I love you so much Shy! -g

  28. makuacave1

    This song, probably more than any song I've ever heard, reminds me of my ex-girlfriend Cheyenne(Anna). I've feel so fortunate to have had her in my life. Her inner-beauty and innocence has opened my eyes and made me a better person. I am grateful. Thank you Chey. My love to you...always. -G

  29. NaturallyBlue88

    I use to sing this almost every night to my x gf

  30. Jul ofDenial

    Mushy sweet, but still one of the most beautiful love songs I've heard...pure, innocent...abundant in life-affirming gentleness.
