Crazy To Love You

Album: Old Ideas (2012)
  • Had to go crazy to love you
    Had to go down to the pit
    Had to do time in the tower
    Begging my crazy to quit

    Had to go crazy to love you
    You who were never the one
    Whom I chased through the souvenir heartache
    Her braids and her 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 in
    That are deeper than any goodbye

    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

    I’m tired of choosing desire
    I 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 in
    That are deeper than any goodbye

    Had to go crazy to love you
    You who were never the one
    Whom I chased through the souvenir heartache
    Her braids and her blouse all undone Writer/s: ANJANI THOMAS, LEONARD COHEN
