Darling divine, please turn on your green light
I'm not feeling so alright, right now
Will your future lovers
Still hold you the same way
Will they sigh, but learn to bend and sway
To your dance left half written

You give me that mad love mad love
Walk right through me
Say how I concern you so
But you don't make it seen
Mad love mad love
Talk right through me
I'm not sure how long I need to wait 'til I'm worthy

Oh darling divine
Is it for your sake or mine
That we're masking, it again
Am I taking my toll

As you dream of perfect youth
My heart's turning cold
Do you know just what you want
Or do you buy what you're sold

(Chorus again)

And i'm sorry
You're the only one left
When I don't know what to do with myself
And I, don't know why I should live
When I've just about run out
Of all I could give

(Quiet chorus)
(Unnecessary instrumental wagonry)
(Chorus, then outro)
