    Somebody said he loves me.

    He loves me when I move his heart to stir
    At night when all is still
    When his dreams are silent
    And I dance a bright, high note...

    He loves me then.

    Somebody said he loves me...

    When we dance in matrimony
    Between sheets of promises
    And disguised stories of temptation...

    He loves me then.

    Somebody said he loves me...

    But when my sun eclipses
    Into the brightest night,
    And I search for him,

    Why doesn't he love me then?

    When all the dreams are silent,
    Still,
    Still like the sound of a thief in my chest;

    When I need you,
    Want you,
    Beg you to tell me,
    Show me,
    Remind me that
    I
    AM
    THE
    ONE...

    But that silly ho's still calling leaving you
    Precious
    Lullabyes
    For my listening pleasure,
    Why don't you love me then?

    When I empty myself
    To take you in, whole
    So that not an inch of me is left to be
    Selfish
    And not an ounce of you is left to be
    Wasted
    And not an iota of me is
    Alien
    To you...

    Why don't you love me then?

    Yet SOMEBODY said you love me!!

    So this little song, I hum to myself...

    I've often been told, I'm one in a million,
    And my heart, I must make a man earn.
    But loving you, my dear, has been oh-so-easy..
    It's loving me I've had to learn.
