Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The poets say that all who love are blind
But I'm in love and I know what time it is
The good book says, "Go seek and ye shall find"
Well, I have sought and my, what a climb it is
Verse 2
My life is just like the weather
It changes with the hours
When he's near, I'm fair and warmer
When he's gone, I'm cloudy with showers
Verse 3
An emotion like the ocean
It's either sink or swim
When a woman loves a man
Like I love him
Verse 4
Never treats me sweet and gentle, the way he should
I got it bad and that ain't good
My poor heart is sentimental, not made of wood
I got it bad and that ain't good
Verse 5
But when the weekend's over and Monday rolls around
I end up like I started out: just cryin' my lil' heart out
He don't love me like I love him
No, nobody could; I got it bad and that ain't good
Verse 6
So bad, so bad
Verse 7
I got on it so bad, so bad, though folks with good intentions
Tell me to save my tears
I'm glad; I'm mad about you; I can't live without you
Lord above me, make him love me the way he should
Verse 8
Like a lonely weeping willow lost in the wood
The things I tell my pillow
No woman should
I got it bad, bad, so bad and that ain't good
