Down in the grey cold cellars where we'd play, I saw you in a crowded room.
Soon we were twins. That's how it all begins, with promises that we made too soon.
I said I've yet to make a promise I can't break,
but darling you know what I really meant to say - I love you - I love you.
Darling you know what I really meant to say - I love you - I love you.

Young men would sing they hated everything. Converted, we would sing along.
Fist in the wall - why stand when you can crawl, with chemicals where they don't belong?
You still believed the vow, I said not me, not now,
but darling you know what I really meant to say. I love you. I love you.
Darling you know what I really meant to say - I love you - I love you.

Our parents swore in this dirty town we'd become addicts and whores.
We laughed and then we did.

Now we had seen neglect become routine as visions of the future blurred.
Brought to your knees, felled by some new disease - just asking for a gentle word.
Speechless, yes I for once had no reply,
but darling you know what I really meant to say. Ooh - ooh. I love you.
Darling you know what I really meant to say - I love you - I love you.
