lyrics

like a woman on fire, going crazy for water
like a drowning man, crazy for breath just above
crazy with hunger are poverty’s daughters
I was born being lonely, I’m crazy for love

crazy for love
it’s everyone’s madness
love, but we don’t do it by rote
love, when the whole world
is sickened with sadness

love is the antidote

with a terrible longing I’ve looked to my lover
in the desperate hour as evening grows dim
clinging for comfort like a child to their mother
in my fever I thought I was crazy for him

but I’m crazy for love
it’s everyone’s madness
love, but we don’t do it by rote
love, when the whole world
is sickened with sadness

love is the antidote

it’s a fervor that brings us to bliss and devotion
a frenzy that shows us the passion to kill
while we burn like a riot and break like an ocean
we make like we’re sober to do what we will

no, we’re crazy for love
it’s everyone’s madness
love, but we don’t do it by rote
love, when the whole world
is sickened with sadness

love is the antidote
