"Love You Madly" as written by and John Mccrea....
I don't want to wonder if this is a blunder
I don't want to worry whether we're going to stay together till we die
I don't want you jumping unless this music's thumping
All the dishes rattle in the cupboards when the elephants arrive

I want to love you madly
I want to love you now
I want to love you madly
I want to love you, love you, love you madly

I don't want to fake it, I just want to make it
The ornaments look pretty but they're pulling down the branches of the tree
I don't want to think about it, I don't want to talk about
When I kiss your lips I want to sink down to the bottom of the sea

I want to love you madly
I want to love you now
I want to love you madly
I want to love you, love you, love you madly

I don't want to hold back, I don't want to slip down
I don't want to think back to the one thing that I know I should have done
I don't want to doubt you, know everything about you
I don't want to sit across the table from you wishing I could run

I want to love madly
I want to love you now
I want to love you madly
I want to love you, love you, love you madly

    General CommentIt's like, the guy just wants to love her.. "The ornaments look pretty But they're pulling Down the branches " - it's like saying how he doesn't want the whole big show of affection, or her dressing up in jewelery and all that... he just wants to simply love her without all the romantic guestures and all the comercial crap...thats just my thoughts

    General Commenti think it is a guy saying that he just wants to love somebody without all the BS that often comes with relationships. he just wants to fall head-over-heels in love.

    General CommentI agree with Hershey and Shoe. He says that he doesn't want to wonder, that he *wants* to love her madly, because he does wonder, that he doesn't love her. The line abou the dishes rattling in the cupboards when the elephants arrive-they argue. Apparently, she brings up his past transgressions-like an elephant, she remembers everything. The line about the pretty ornaments pulling down the branches of the tree could be about how little details about her-her little idiosyncrasies-were cute before, but now they irritate him. That's not new for anything, is it?

    And, as Hershey said, Cake just kicks ass.

    General Comment@ hanooska

    That sounds like an amazing story! It's as if you were both 'in the right place' for such a meeting to occur. I hope this 'Jon' knows that you feel this way. I bet he misses you every day, and that you're always on his mind. I sincerely hope everything works out for you two. Such a love story that would make.

    All the best to you both! :D

    General Commentcake has a very interesting method of intertwining very dark metaphoric songs with very clean warm song. this is one of those cake songs that breathes vibrance and still ties nicly with the semi-morbid truth of "the distance", "cool blue reason" or "long line of cars"

    General Comment Yeah! My favorite song about one-night stands. Who needs all the bullshit baggage? Fuckin' and rockin'!

    Seriosly, I love this song, however, the above merely reflects the tone of the song, not my personal preference. "The ornaments look pretty, but they're pulling down the branches on the tree" is one of the most prolific lyrics in rock. Cake for President!
