Lyrics

(Source: Gospel Oak)

I love you, my hard Englishman,
Your rage is like a fist in my womb.
Can't you forgive what you think I've done?
And love me--I'm your woman.
And I desire you, my hard Englishman,
And there is no more natural thing.
So why should I not get loving?
Don't be a cold Englishman.
How come you've never said you love me
In all the time you've known me?
How come you never say you're sorry,
And I do?
Oh, please talk to me, Englishman,
What good will shutting me out get done?
Meanwhile, crazies are killing our sons.
Now listen, Englishman.
I have honored you, hard Englishman,
Now I am calling your heart to my own.
Oh, let glorious work be done,
Be truthful, Englishman.
How come you've never said you love me
In all the time you've known me?
How come you never say you're sorry,
And I do?
I do.
