From the recording A Salt and Battery

Lyrics

Gonna Love You

How can one man fall so deeply into danger?
"Love eternal" wakes one day, a total stranger
I would not believe the evidence before me
Now I pay the price of my stupidity, but…

Someday, somehow, you are gonna see
You’ll love me like I loved you
And I’m gonna love you just like you loved me

Hidden by the glib façade of "ardent lover"
Avaricious barracuda, under cover
Chewed up, spit out – hope you got what you were after
In the end, you’ll find that mine will be the laughter

Someday, somehow, you are gonna see
You’ll love me like I loved you
And I’m gonna love you just like you loved me

I must have her!
(She’s not your possession)
I’m a victim!
(Of your own obsession)
I’ll get her back!
(If you’re smart you’ll let it go)
How could I be all that smart?
I let that woman crucify my heart!

And I am having trouble coping with the pain
And I have thoughts that might be just a tad insane
Enjoy your victory feast while you are able
I will find a way, someday, to turn the tables

Someday, somehow, you are gonna see
You’ll love me like I loved you
And I’m gonna love you just like you loved me
Baby, just like you loved me
