"Nevertheless I'm in Love With You" as written by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby....
I knew the time had to come
When I'd be held under your thumb
I'm like a pawn in your hand
Moved and compelled, at your command
Whether it's for bad or for good
I would never change it if I could

Maybe I'm right, maybe I'm wrong
Maybe I'm weak, maybe I'm strong
But nevertheless I'm in love with you
Maybe I'll win, maybe I'll lose
And maybe I'm in for crying the blues
But nevertheless I'm in love with you

Somehow, I know at a glance, the terrible chances I'm taking
Fine at the start, then left with a heart that is breaking

Maybe I'll live a life of regret, and maybe I'll give much more than I get
But nevertheless, I'm in love with you

In spite of all I could do
I went ahead falling for you
So if I laugh or I cry
I made my bed, that's where I'll lie
For what happens there's no excuse
I put my own head in the noose

    My InterpretationAfter a life of playing the field she has captured his heart and mind and he will do what she wants if it works for him or not.
    He might be right or wrong in this choice, maybe he is just too weak to walk away or it could be he feels strong enough to handle this Love never the less he is in Love.
    He could win and have a lifetime of great Love or lose and be heart broken and left crying the blues but he is still in Love.

    He knew when he first saw her it was a risk, maybe there were many others looking for her attentions and his chance was slim.

    He realizes that what he sees could be only surface impresion and now we see he only just saw her. She might be fine at first but she might not be what he has imagined.

    He might regret doing this and he plans on giving what ever it takes to win her even if she gives nothing in return because in his mind he Loves her already.

    So now he is ready for whichever way chance will take him, to laugh with her or cry alone there is no excue because he is doing this to himself.

    Male of Female, reverse the sides in my lines we all have taken or will take our chances sooner or later in our lives Maybe we are right or Maybe we are wrong. Nevertheless we fall……
