I Love You Like I Love You.

I Love You Like I Love You.

I love you like I love you and I don’t wanna lie,
I need you like I need you and I don’t wanna cry,
I wanna give you hugs again, I don’t wanna fight,
I love you like I love you and I don’t wanna lie,

I know I said some awful things that made you so mad,
And I would do most anything to take it all back,
I wanna say the sweetest things that make you so glad,
I love you like I love you and I don’t want you sad,

I wanna be your friend again, I don’t wanna shout,
I wanna say I love you, that’s what it’s all about,
I’m sorry that I ever gave you reason to doubt,
I love you like I love you and there’s no way out,

I love you like I love you and I don’t wanna lie,
I need you like I need you and I don’t wanna cry,
I wanna give you hugs again, I don’t wanna fight,
I love you like I love you and I don’t wanna lie,

I know I did some awful things and I let you down,
And I would do most anything to change it all now,
I wanna do the sweetest things that make you so proud,
I love you like I love you, I don’t want you to frown,

I wanna make the world of us so perfect for you,
Not perfect like I’ll never be, but perfectly true,
I want you to believe in me when I say I do,
I love you like I love you, will you love me too,

One, two… o’, I love you,
Three, four… please open the door,
Five, six… will you forgive,
Seven, eight… before it’s too late,

O’, I love you like I love you and I don’t wanna lie,
I need you like I need you and I don’t wanna cry,
I wanna give you hugs again, I don’t wanna fight,
I love you like I love you and I don’t wanna lie,

Yes, I love you like I love you and I want you to say,
You love me like you love me and you love me today.

  1. The repetitive-ness add to the lyrical flow. These sound like song lyrics. I like the child's rhyme. Good work, WillyToad.

  2. it is a song... i must admit i get my lyrical rhythm from dr. seuss, not paul simon. :p this song in particular has a chugging sort of rhythm, it put me in mind of dr. seuss's 'and to think i saw it on mulberry street'; not for meaning, but because he wrote that work on a steam ship crossing the atlantic; to the rhythm of the chugging ship. how cool to have lived like that. the deeper part (for me) is the simple fact of how we treat loved ones horribly and when in the fire get desperate... then we realize that no word describes love better than love... and we sound like the rambling seuss... "i love you like i love you... and i don't wanna lie". the upbeat of the song is ironic to the desperation of the words. thanx for your good words... and for listening. :)
