Say You Love Me


Written: 1997
Released: 1999 on 'October'



A cold wind shivers through me
Like a cigarette when I was twenty-one
Freezing the breath within me
Catching the words on the tip of my tongue
I gaze on you as a wondering child
Gazes on his first rainbow


Say you love me love me only
Take forever tell me slowly
Say you love me and I'll believe you
Tell me softly as I leave you
Say you love me like a raindrop
In the oceans of my dreams

And though these tides of reason
Have left me cold as the skies up above
Yet still with age this reason
Can reason not with the ages of love
And watching you sometimes I feel
I've spent my life just waiting for you
Say you love me love me only
Take forever tell me slowly
Say you love me and I'll believe you
Tell me softly as I leave you

Say you love me when I am aching
Say you love me when I am shaking
Say you love me when I am breaking
And the dreams in my eyes all crumble away
When I'm longing and lost tell me lies but say
You love me in ways I've never heard
Say you love me tell me dreams too absurd
To believe in and I'll believe every word
You're saying
The say it again
Say you love me in ways I've never heard
Say you love me tell me dreams too absurd
To believe in and I'll believe every word
You're saying
Say you love me
Say you love me
You love me
