Sweetness Lyrics - Jimmy Eat World

Review The Song (17)

Are you listening. (Whoa,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)
Sing it back. (Ah,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)

String from your tether unwinds.
(string from your tether unwinds, uh oh, uh oh)
Up and outward to bind
(Up and outward to bind, uh oh, uh oh)
I was spinning free (Whoa,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)
with a little sweet and simple numbing me

Are you listening? (Whoa,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)
Sing it back. (Ah,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)
So tell me what do I need (tell me what do I need, uh oh, uh oh)
When words lose their meaning (When words lose their meaning)
I was spinning free (Whoa,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)
with a little sweet and simple numbing me
Yeah, stumble til you crawl (Whoa,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)
Sinking into sweet uncertainty

Are you listening? Are you listening?
If you're listening (Whoa,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)
If you're listening, Are you listening?
Sing it back (Ah,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)
If you're listening, Are you listening?
I'm still running away
I'm still running away, uh oh, uh oh
Won't play your hide and seek game.
I was spinning free (Whoa,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)
with a little sweet and simple numbing me.
What a dizzy dance (whoa,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh)
This sweetness will not be concerned with me.
No the sweetness will not be concerned with me.

Song meaning | Reviewer: Tim | 8/3/14

I doubt anyone visits this page anymore. Just thought I would share with you the meaning of this songs lyrics. It's about cocaine, and how it makes the artist feel. Hence, the sweet and simple numbing me, coming unwound etc.. This is a perfect description of the effects of cocaine! Nothing go new here. The entertainment industry is naturally saturated with heavy drug influence of all sorts. Cocaine isn't a bad one if u look at heroine abuse.

Great! | Reviewer: Lukey | 4/2/13

I forgot how much this song was apart of my reality back in 2001, 2002. I heard it on college radio back in '01 and I used to jog to it every nite when I was getting ready for Air Force boot camp. The lyrics are somehow melancholy to me and summed up alot of what I felt at that time in my life, especially the last lines. I heard by accident yesterday and it was like a wave of emotion hit me that I forgot about. Great song guys!

I love Jimmy Eat World and have continued to be a fan of theirs. Their music is exciting and insightful. This song is for those times when i am feeling down, and i remeber that i once had the urge to run away from my troubles and run away from reality, but all that has changed and all i desire is to confront my past mistakes, letting go of my personal dissapointment,and fixing my ways in order to create a better future for myself, and for my family.

This Song Is Pure Poetry | Reviewer: EllyandraJamise | 2/17/11

I remember 'the middle' from long ago, and rediscovered it last week. Since then I have been hyped up on all Jimmy Eat World songs. I just now heard this song for the first time.. all I can say is this band gets me. It's almost freaky. Poetic, amazing, rock-out music that freaks me out ...so lovely.

hmmm....... | Reviewer: bitev-vme | 3/2/10

this track is boss. it makes me think about my best friend so i enjoy it very much! the funny thing is that the song mainly consists of "whoas" but the lyrics in it are enough to remind me of certain points in my life.

n_n b'bye!

Sweetness | Reviewer: Hamilton | 9/17/09

yeah i totally love this song, i think the album clarity is the best out of them all, and on that album is the studio demo of this song and wow its amazing, so much better than the normal one, faster paced, its just great, favourite song from them.. its gotta be the studio demo one though haha

all their songs, the lyrics... they are so nice, they sing about reality.. they sing about things u might run into in life, and i ran into a lot of them already.. they just sing about feelings i love it

Great | Reviewer: Blaine Corley | 6/24/09

I didn't hear about this song until my friend showed it to me just a few weeks ago.
The lyrics, the sound, the emotion...I dont see how people just can't like this song. Its moving, and inspirational. Great job jimmy eat world. Its great to know your song has influenced so many, for so long.

2002! | Reviewer: Robbie | 5/28/09

This song reminds me of summer 2002, it definetely makes me go down memory lane.. OMG it was one of the happiest times of my life and the song it┬┤s just awesome, Jimmy Eat World is one of the greatest power pop bands ever.

upsetting | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/20/09

I remember loving this song when it first came out. I recently downloaded it for Rock Band 2 so I could rock out to a fun song that held little meaning to me when I first heard it...but when I played it yesterday and the lyric came up:

And I'm still running away (echo)
Whoa, Whoa
I won't play your hide and seek game (echo)
Whoa, Whoa

It made me cry. I still trying to figure out why that is. I must be more depressed than I thought.

i love this song | Reviewer: chupakabra | 2/6/09

this song made me stab my daughter, in the face. All of you are retarded for liking this song jimmy eat world might as well eat my asshole. Except their song in the middle is the bomb. Fuck chuck norris and anyone like him. Styrofoam for life. NIGGA!
