|Right Michael, which is it? Were you merely mistaken about your confused emotional inner landscape, or did you actively lie about it? That would make a large difference. |
I take the lyrics you quoted as meaning that he was absolutely sure about what he felt, so he lied deliberately to force the other person to believe him. Another guy who seems a little bit confused about the same matter is Raul Malo (a Cuban born in Miami... ever heard of him?):
I said I love you, I didn't mean to,
but the moonlight just gave me away.
Now that I've said it, try to forget it,
and pretend it was all a mistake;
I'll keep trying, though I'm denying
this feeling that I know is true,
stumblin' & fallin' and still after all I keep fallin' in love with you.
OK, Raul, I have just one thing to ask you. If you knew right from the outset that saying "I love you" would get you into all sorts of trouble, why the heck did you say it???
Talking about nonsensical poetical lyrics, I think Van Dyke Parks is one of the kings of the genre, especially in the stuff he wrote with Brian Wilson. If you wish I shall give you a sample of his words of wisdom.
