lyrics

The Meaning Of My Love
purpose/zollo

She forgets such simple things
Her cowboy boots and angel wings
The trellis where my memory sings
But I love her so

She’s so deep inside the mire
Wrapped up in foil and chicken wire
She has got to be the world’s worst liar
But I love her so, but I love her so

CHORUS: And the helicopters fly above The human things we’re all made of
Honey, don’t you know anything About the meaning of my love?

The sky is black, the grass is brown
She stands me up when I am down
And leaves me cold in this cartoon town
But I love her so

Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Nothing broken, only sprained
She’s sketchy and so scatterbrained
But I love her so, but I love her so

CHORUS: And the helicopters fly above The human things we’re all made of
Honey, don’t you know anything About the meaning of my love?

She is sunshine, she is shade
She’s sweet and sour like lemonade
She thinks moonlight is retrograde
But I love her so

She never fell far from the nest
The only coast she knows is west
She’s shallow and so self-obsessed
But I love her so, but I love her so

CHORUS: And the BETTER ANGELS fly above The human things we’re all made of
Honey, don’t you know anything About the meaning of my love?
