Juice Newton – The Sweetest Thing (I’ve Ever Known), “The Sweetest Thing (I’ve Ever Known)” is a country-pop song written by Otha Young for Juice Newton in the mid-1970s. Newton was known for charting hits on the Hot 100, AC, and Hot Country charts – and this song has the distinction of being the only single of hers to reach the top 10 on all three of those charts, peaking at #1 on two of them.

In early 1982, “The Sweetest Thing (I’ve Ever Known)” reached No. 1 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart, No. 1 on the Billboard country chart, and No. 7 on the Billboard pop chart, where it remained in the Top 40 for eighteen weeks. The single is the only of Juice Newton’s to reach the Top 10 on all three charts. On Billboard’s year-end Top 40 chart, the song charted at No. 21 of all the singles of 1982. The music video for the song was filmed in New York City.

Juice Newton – The Sweetest Thing (I’ve Ever Known) Lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I see you in the morning
That old sleep still in your eyes
I remember all the laughter
And the tears we shared last night

[PreChorus 1]
And as we lie here, just two shadows
In the light before the dawn
The sweetest thing I’ve ever known
Is loving you

[Chorus]
And I have never been afraid of losing
And I have never wanted love to be a chain
I only know that when I’m with you
You’re my sunshine, you’re my rain
The sweetest thing I’ve ever known
Is loving you

[Verse 2]
Now, you and I, we’re not children
We have both been loved before
We have given and we have taken
Many rides on troubled shores
[PreChorus 2]
And all the heartaches and temptations
Only make me love you more
The sweetest thing I’ve ever known
Is loving you

[Chorus]

[Outro]
The sweetest thing I’ve ever known
Is loving you
