One Tree Hill (I Had To Go Crazy To Love You)

One Tree Hill (I Had To Go Crazy To Love You)

I Had To Go Crazy To Love You

I had to go crazy to love you
Had to go down to the pit
Had to do time in the tower
Now I’m too tired to quit

I had to go crazy to love you
You who were never the one
Whom I chased through the
Souvenir heartache
My braids and my blouse all undone

Sometimes I’d head for the highway
I’m old and the mirrors don’t lie
But crazy has places to hide me
Deeper than saying goodbye

I had to go crazy to love you
Had to let everything fall
Had to be people I hated
Had to be no one at all

Tired of choosing desire
I’ve been saved by a blessed fatigue
The gates of commitment unwired
And nobody trying to leave

Sometimes I’d head for the highway
I’m old and the mirrors don’t lie
But crazy has places to hide me
Deeper than saying goodbye
