  • Oh the sweetest spot
    When it's gone, it's gone
    Don't make me suffer for that
    Just to love me
    A final dividend

    Between the hurt and the tell of song
    Between the flesh and the fondest wrong
    There is a gardless state
    Where the real and the dream may consummate

    Oh the sweetest spot
    When it's gone, it's gone
    Don't make me suffer for that
    Just to love me
    A final dividend

    Between the wound and end
    Between the break and the mend
    Between the world and the get
    Between bone dry and the dripping wet

    It's in the holy ghost of air
    Between two hands held in prayer
    There is a gardless state
    Where the real and the dream may consummate

    Oh the sweetest spot
    When it's gone, it's gone
    Don't make me suffer for that
    Just to love me
    A final dividend Writer/s: BEN LITTLE, CHRISTOPHER ROBERT TALBOT, HAYDEN NORMAN THORPE, THOMAS WILLIAM FLEMING
