Two from Keb' Mo'...
It's no secret, I don't care
Gonna shout it out everywhere
I love my baby, hot, cold, fast or slow
I love my baby, gonna tell everybody I know
In the evening in my bed, I hear voices in my head
They say, "Never, never ever let her go"
Well, I love my baby, gonna tell everybody I know
Yes, I love my baby, gonna tell everybody I know
That was me about 14 years ago, when I was deep in love and all was right with the world. That was then... this is now:
Mebbe it's old age, mebbe it's my abject fear o' getting burned again... but whatever it is, I've resisted the itch these last 14 years and I abso-frickin'-lute-ly refuse to be a three-time loser. Lyle sang "Once Is Enough" and I'm thinkin' two times is one time too many, at the VERY least. Am I cynical? Mebbe. But contrary to what Mr. Mo sez... I've yet to forget the lawyers and the pain. The money? No biggie... easy come, easy go. The other bits? Not so much. Some wounds simply refuse to heal.Mother Mary, father Joe I need to talk to your sonHe had troubles just like mineAnd he’s the chosen oneSo if I ever go to heaven, will that be the end?Or will I fall for some sweet little angelAnd do the same damn thing all over againYou get the feverYou get the itchAnd you forget about the mess you were inYou forget about the money, the lawyers and the painAnd do the same damn thing all over again
