I Wish I Were in Love Again

Writer(s): Richard Rodgers / Lorenz Hart

The sleepless nights – the daily fights – the quick toboggan – when you reach the heights
I miss the kisses – and I miss the bites – I wish I were in love again
The broken dates – the endless waits – the lovely loving – and the hateful hates
The conversation – with the flying plates, I wish I were in love again
No more pain – no more strain, now I’m sane – but I would rather be punched – drunk
The pulled out fur – of cat and cur, the fine mismating – of a him and her
I’ve learned my lesson – but I wish I were in love again
The furtive sigh – the blackened eye, the words: “I love you – ’til the day I day”
The self deception – that believes the lie – I wish I were in love again
When love congeals – it soon reveals – the faint aroma – of performing seals
The double-crossing – of a pair of heels, I wish I were in love again
No, no more care – no, no despair, now I’m all there (now) – but I’d rather be punchdrunk
Believe me sir – I much prefer the classic battle – of a him and her
I don’t like quiet – and I wish I were in love again – in love again – in love again
