I Can I Will I Do

Friend, this shouldn't be the way things end
But then, a break is just around the bend.
And when, you tell me as I leave
You're scared you'll never see my face again
Well, I'm not sure it's the truth

You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
But I can and I will and I do

You write - I read your letters every night
All right, I skim them just to be polite.
I fight, embarrassment and shame
The mention of your name makes me turn white
But guilt still makes me refrain

You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
But I can and I will and I do

I imagine you think I don't think of you
You know you couldn't be more wrong
If good intentions paved the road that gets me through
I've got a six-lane highway
And I intend to someday
Do all the things I say I can and I will and I do

Hey - It's hard for me to go away
Okay, I know it's not adult
But it's just as difficult for me to stay
And anyway you say

You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you oh
You don't think I can love you love you love you love you

I can and I will and I do
I can and I will and I do
