Must You Use The Word "Love"?
- W Ross Campbell
Must you use the word "Love"?
I know you're fond of me
You know I think the world of you
But when you use the word "Love" the time confuses me
And I forget I'm only passing through
Must you always say "We"?
As though we'll never part
As though I'll never say goodbye
And must I know when I leave
That you'll be torn apart?
Must you set yourself up just to cry?
Please don't misunderstand me
It's not that I don't feel
That surge of warmth when you come in
That signals something real
Come and lie down by my side
And put your lips to mine
And whisper to me what you're thinking of
But don't be shocked if I say
When you've been whispering
Darling, must you use the word "Love"?
