Crazy to Love You

Crazy to Love You - Louco pra te amar

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
Deeper than saying 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
Been saved by a sweet fatigue
The gates of commitment unwired
And nobody trying to leave

Sometimes I’d head for the highway…

Had to go crazy to love you...

Pra te amar, tive que enlouquecer
Tive que ir ao fundo do poço
Tive que fazer hora na torre
Implorando pra que a loucura cessasse

Pra te amar, tive que enlouquecer
Você que nunca foi aquela
que persegui pela lembrança da mágoa
Sua blusa amassada e sua trança desfeita

Às vezes, me dirigia à estrada
Sou velho e os espelhos não mentem
Mas a loucura tem lugares pra se esconder,
lugares mais fundos que dar um adeus

Pra te amar, tive que enlouquecer
Tive que deixar tudo desmoronar
Tive que ser pessoas que odeio
Tive que ser ninguém afinal

Estou cansado de escolher o desejo
Sendo salvo por uma doce fadiga
As portas do comprometimento abertas
e ninguém as tentando cruzar

Às vezes, me dirigia à estrada...

Pra te amar, tive que enlouquecer...
