Two weeks in a Virginia jail 
For my lover for my lover 
Twenty thousand dollar bail 
For my lover for my lover

And everybody thinks 
That I'm the fool 
But they don't get 
Any love from you 
The things we won't do for love
I'd climb a mountain if I had to 
And risk my life so I could have you 
You, you, you... 

Everyday I'm psychoanalyzed
For my lover for my lover 
They dope me up and I tell them lies
For my lover for my lover 

I follow my heart
And leave my head to ponder
Deep in this love 
No man can shake 

I follow my heart 
And leave my mind to wonder
Is this love worth 
The sacrifices I make
