Monday, I'd been working hard since early morning
Now I needed somewhere to lay my head
Stumbled into my room
And I wondered how you
Fit so many strangers in my bed

Though you asked me to stay
At least ten miles away
Though the sparkle in your smile
Is just the natural state of decay
Though you're nothing at all
Like the woman I was dreaming of
I just want to tell the world that
I'm in love

Tuesday, you said that you wanted to surprise me
So I played along, I put the blindfold on
What could go wrong?
Good thing I've got good hearing
Who knew Metronorth trains
Could come on so silent and so strong?

Though you're never hard to find
If I know where they keep the wine
Though you like to clean my place
Just so you can rob me blind
Though your "friend from outer space"
Is the only thing sent from above
I just want to tell the world that
I'm in love

And my friends, they all tell me
That I'm crazy for loving you
When I've already got three broken bones
Now I know from watching movies
And the television too
That anything
Anything is better than
Being alone

Though you really like to laugh
At my family photographs
So you want to be my wife
So you can tell the judge you want half
Though your favorite thing in life
Is to find old ladies to shove
I just want to tell the world...
I just want to tell the world...
That I'm in...
