When You Give Your Love To Me

(Kevin Gilbert, Bill Bottrell)

I've been thinking about this for the last 3 days
I don't think that I'm deluding myself - I don't think that this is just a phase
And I don't mean to shock you - I hope that I'm not rushing in
But I think that this is kind of important
I don't know exactly where to begin

My whole life has been a constant ailment
You can provide a simple remedy
Yeah, I'm gonna show some vast improvements
When you give your love to me
And you can trust that I'm a worthy recipient
And be assured I'll act responsibly
I'll treat it like a work of rare and priceless art
When you give your love to me

So how’s about it girlfriend? Am I gonna have to twist your arm?
Perhaps it's not the most original concept
But it has a kind of timeless charm

You'll have the little birds flying all ‘round your head
And you'll gaze at me dreamily
Yeah the whole world’ll smile and wave
When you give your love to me
And I will write you a hundred sonnets
Every word will rhyme easily
And all your friends will be genuinely supportive
When you give your love to me

I'm sick of hearing about sadness - I'm sick of violent crime
I'm sick of angry militant lesbian feminists - I'm sick of imperfect rhyme

I've always heard that we should love one another
And what a fine example we will be
Maybe we can start a trend or something
When you give your love to me
And maybe then we'll get our friends together
And they'll all get along famously
I think that everyone will feel much better
When you give your love to me
There'll be global peace and religious tolerance
All men as brothers in a world that's free
There'll be a perfect cosmic harmonic convergence
When you give your love to me
