“Sweet” by Cigarettes After Sex
The lyrics of Cigarettes After Sex’s “Sweet” revolve around the notion of the vocalist being thoroughly smitten by the addressee. To illustrate that point, he makes us listeners aware of the fact that not only is she quite sexy but also the type who sends him sensual videos.
But when Greg watches them, his focus isn’t solely on her body, despite the singer admittedly being “obsessed” with it. Instead it is the littler things so to speak, like her “smile” and “eyes”, that really impresses him.
In other words, it is such displays which verify that the addressee too is in love with him, despite direct terminology of this nature never being exchanged between the two of them. And the vocalist understands that being in love is such that his heart may be ultimately broken. But he’s more than willing to take the risk in the name of calling the addressee his own.
Release of “Sweet”
This was the fourth and final single from Cigarettes After Sex’s debut album, a self-titled effort that Partisan Records made public on 9 June 2017.
