Friend, this shouldn’t be the way the things end
But then a break is just around the bend
And when you tell me as I leave
You’re scared you’ll never see my face again
Well, I’m not sure it’s the truth

You don’t think I can love you
You don’t think I can love you
You don’t think I can love you
But I can and I will and I do

You write
I read your letters every night
All right
I skim them just to be polite
I fight embarrassment and shame
The mention of your name makes me turn white
But guilt still makes me refrain

You don’t think I can love you
You don’t think I can love you
You don’t think I can love you
But I can and I will and I do

I imagine you think I don’t think of you
You know you couldn’t be more wrong
If good intentions pave the road that gets me throuth
Then I’ve got a six-lane highway
And I intend to someday
Do all the things I say I can and I will and I do

Hey
It’s hard for me to go away
Okay, I know it’s not adult
But it’s just a difficult for me to stay
And anyway you say

You don’t think I can love you
You don’t think I can love you
You don’t think I can love you
Love you love you love you
I can and I will and I do
I can and I will and I do
