Miss Simone lyrics

Sara Bareilles

Smiles in the morning at me
Apartment on the second story
Strangers in a brand new city
Both remembering last night
Kitchen table and a bottle of wine
The only thing on my mind is you

The way the moonlight flickered in
We were stars of some old classic film

With Miss Simone
Singing, "Pour some sugar in my bowl, baby"
In the glow of the candlelight, we danced all night
On the rooftop, thinking no one needs to know a thing
But Miss Simone
No one but Miss Simone

Moving boxes cover the floor
I've never quite been here before
Finally made a house feel like home
The years are flying past us now
You and I have figured out how
To conjure up a feeling so true

Close the door and set the day down
Settle in, and we'll throw on some

Miss Simone
Singing, "Pour some sugar in my bowl, baby"
In the glow of the candlelight, we can dance all night
On the rooftop, thinking no one needs to know a thing
But Miss Simone
No one but Miss Simone

How'd she know what a heart sounds like
In the glow of this candle on a rooftop in the moonlight?

Someday when we're old and gray
Sifting through our yesterdays
We'll pull that memory from its sleeve
And play that song of you and me

And Miss Simone
Singing, "Pour some sugar in my bowl, baby"
In the glow of the candlelight, we will dance all night
On the rooftop, thinking no one needs to know a thing
But Miss Simone
No one but Miss Simone

Mmh, mmh
