Ain't That Peculiar
You do me wrong but I'm still crazy 'bout you
Stay away too long and I can't live without you
Every chance you get you seem to hurt me more and more
But each hurt just makes my love stronger than before
I know that flowers grow to rain
But how can love grow to pain?
Ain't that peculiar, a peculiarity
Ain't that peculiar, peculiar as can be

You tell me lies that you'll be honest to me
But I'm so much in love that I don't see that
The things you do and say are designed to make me blue
It's a doggone shame my love that your lies seem true
If the truth makes love last longer
Why do lies make love last stronger?
Ain't that peculiar, a peculiarity
Ain't that peculiar, peculiar as can be

Oh I've cried so much just like a child that's lost his toy
Maybe baby you think these tears I cry are tears of joy
A child can cry so much and still do anything you say
Well, I'm like a child my tears don't help me get my way
I know that love can last through years
But how can love last through tears?
Ain't that peculiar, a peculiarity
Ain't that peculiar, peculiar as can be
