You don't know why I'm crazy
I don't know why you're blue
You messed with my head
You messed with the dead
Now I'm gonna mess with you
I don't know why you're lazy
I'm so in love with you
What's God gonna see
Who's God gonna know
When's God gonna help us through

I can't deny I can't explain I can't reply
I can't refrain
I want his hands I want his chest I want his feet
I want his sex
I am the child I am the whore I am the wild woman
at your door
I need to touch I need to talk I need to love I need to
give you you up

What am I fighting for
If I win I lose my life
I need you more and more to
break my will tonight

Only love can set us free
Only love can bear the truth
Only love can bring us peace
Only love can save me and you

Oh Daddy what I've been thinking
Only heaven knows
What's Ma gonna see who's Ma gonna blame
When's Mama gonna carry you home

I have the urge I have the mind
I have the touch I drank the wine
I want the loss I want the pain I want to start my life again
I can't define I can't forget I can't explain the feeling of regret
I know the dead I'm not alone I made my bed
I want to let you you go

What am I frightened for
If I speak I lose my mind
You've broken down the door and there is no place to hide

Only love can set us free
Only love can bear the truth
Only love can bring us peace
Only love can save me and you
Only love can purify
Only love can conquer fear
Only love can testify
Only love can make a miracle of life

    General CommentThis song makes me think of when I experienced the moment of ephiphany that I was staring into the eyes of my future husband...neither of us said anything but we both knew it (and he didn't propose until 5 years later) but my thoughts kind of followed a a similar train of thought to this song.

    General CommentThis song is just PERFECT!

    It's one of those songs that moves you and you don't even know why...it just does!

    It echoes the longings and fears we all have when we find ourselves in the midst of something that has the potential to be beautiful and PERFECT!
