Lyrics:

(AZ Lyrics)

I can hear her heart beat from a thousand miles

And the heavens open every time she smiles

And when I come to her that’s where I belong

Yet I’m running to her like a river’s song

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She’s got a fine sense of humor when I’m feeling low down

And when I come to her when the sun goes down

Take away my trouble, take away my grief

Take away my heartache in the night like a thief

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

Yes I need her in the daytime

I need her

Yes I need her in the night

I need her

Yes I want to throw my arms around her

I need her

Kiss and hug her, kiss and hug her tight

And when I’m returning from so far away

She gives me some sweet lovin’ brighten up my day

Yes it makes me righteous, yes it makes me whole

Yes it makes me mellow down into my soul

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
