love you madly


Written: 1992
Released: 2001 on 'The Ballad of Ruben Garcia'



A thousand valentines I've rehearsed for you
But each time right on cue
I forget my lines
Words fall from my lips
Clumsy as in gloves
Though I think in doves
Words come out like ostriches
And run
Off my tongue
And the moment's gone

Wait
Won't you stay
Long enough
For me to say
How I love you madly
Love you madly
Love you madly
Am I insane?

Take me to your heart
Ragged as I am
Try to understand
I've loved you from the start
Take a little time
Get to know me well
For only time will tell
Whether I'm a dreamer
And a fool
Loving you
Madly as I do

Look
Look at me
Shaking here
Oh can't you see
How I love you madly
Love you madly
Love you madly
Am I insane?
Or just a little weak
For this battle that I seek
Oh shall I never speak again?
No
No I'm a fool
But this fool
Is asking you
Will you love me
Love me
Love me
Love me madly too
