Such good love still it reached its end
The smoothest cut leaves a jagged rend
Some hearts break and some just bend
Over don’t mean it’s through

Learned it late but I learned in time
Sour grapes make for a bitter wine
You got yours but you still want mine
Well maybe I’m just like you

Cuz we were fool enough to say we could simply walk away
But being all alone don’t mean you’re free
If they ask me well it’s true; I’m still in love with you
Oh the taste that lingers from defeat
Is the Honeyed and the Bittersweet

Heart forgives what the head forsakes
Still repeating all the same mistakes
One heart gives and one just takes
Ain’t it time we faced the truth?

We got stuck on yesterday and lost ourselves along the way
But there’s a difference between surrender and retreat
If you ask me well it’s true; I’m still in love with you
Sad the place regret and forgiveness meet
Between the Honeyed and the Bittersweet

Maybe love needs a more patient hand
Maybe time leaves a rosy hue
Maybe if the stars aligned
A different place, a different time
There’d be more to tell ‘bout me and you

Maybe what we’ve learned
Is that the story twists and turns
Baby yours and mine feels incomplete
Cuz it’s pretty plain to see, you’re still in love with me
Maybe there's a place that we can meet
Between the Honeyed and the Bittersweet…Between the Honeyed and the Bittersweet
