Don’t Love You Like Anything

(song lyrics)

 

Don’t love you like no bumblin’ bee

Don’t love you like the ocean

Like a tree with leaves in motion

Or any kind of simile

Don’t love you like

any-other-thing

You’re just you

I love you

 

More than any metaphor

More than poetical expression

More than allegorical suggestion

More than any grammar lore

I love you, yes I do, simply you

 

You’re not a journey, not a fire

Not a bird arose from pyre

Not that only fairest flower

Nor nutritious cauliflower

You’re not the silly “road not taken”

And you’re not a four star destination

You’re just you

I love you

 

You’re the why for all the things I do

You’re the hope my life aspires to

…well maybe you’re a superlative or two

You’re just you

Yeah I love you

 

You’re not water in a canteen

Not the path that starts my day

Not math solutions on display

…or grammar phrase between

 

Don’t love you like a tree

Don’t love you like no bumblin’ bee

Don’t love you like the ocean

Or any kind of simile

 

Don’t love you like

anything-other-thing

You’re just you

You’re just you

 

You’re not an allegory, far-out story

You’re not some silly metaphor-y

You’re just you

That’ll do

I love you

 

More than any metaphor

More than poetical expression

More than allegorical suggestion

More than any grammar lore

I love you, yes I do, simply you

That’ll do

I

Love

You

~Michael Kroth

To Lana – just for you, I love you
