By The Sea

Album: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (1979)

Songfacts®:

  • "By The Sea" is a love duet of sorts. Another song from the dark Steven Sondheim musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street, a lovestruck Mrs Lovett makes all the running while a brooding Sweeney Todd has other things on his mind. >>
