I used to know why I loved you
But now it's all gone wrong  
The image I cultivated  
From your sweet siren song
You never said as much
But I advanced too much
I do confess
We could've had something so strong

You must be
Deaf, dumb, and blind, deaf, dumb, and blind
Deaf, dumb, and blind, deaf, dumb, and blind

Speak up, speak up, speak up, Speak up
Speak up 'cause I can hardly hear
Over the sound of your madness
You cannot see what is to be
But you're tellin' me what's going down
My dear, thou doth protest
A bit too much, I guess
Your mouth is open
But I can't hear a word that's comin' out

You must be
Deaf, dumb, and blind, deaf, dumb, and blind
Deaf, dumb, and blind, deaf, dumb, and blind

You've got your sanctimony
You've got your cross to bear
You've got your acrimony
While I've got a heart that cares

A heart that cares too much
Too much to let you go
It twists and turns at night
But you would never know
So I confine myself
To visions of a world
Where you and I give it a whirl

You must be
So in love with me
You're so in love with me

We'll be together  
In sunny weather
There is no reason
We can't live forever

The walls that pad this room are
Nice and thick
And the jacket's warm, too
The dreams I have of you are good and bad
Even though we are through
I've never seen a love
So vivid, in spite of  
the fact
That it never, ever, ever once
existed at all
What remains of this brain creates a victory hall

I've got my golden palace
Suspended in the air
I've got my sweet delusion
You will be waiting there
