I Was Born to Love Her

from by Michael Holland

lyrics

Every time she smiles at me
it’s Christmas time.
Never I get one minute of sleep
She rarely escapes my mind.
I’m deep with her disease and
I feel fine.
Something in the breeze is saying
I was born to love her, she was born to
Make a fool of me.

I go search my clothes for any
Strain of hair.
Rushing around every corner
Hoping she’ll be there.
Wondering “what’d she mean?”
And “does she care?”
Any old thing she pleases.
I was born to lover her, she was born to
Make a fool of me.

She shuts me up with a simple
Wave of her hand.
She waits for me in the
Promised Land.

I know many of you
Would never understand.
I see her in stars above and every
Grain of sand.
She’ll wait for me in the
Promised Land.

I was born to lover her, she was born to
Make a fool of me.
I was born to lover her, she was born to
Make a fool of me.
I was born to lover her, she was born to
Make a fool of me.
