"Ain't That Peculiar" lyrics - CHRIS HILLMAN

"Ain't That Peculiar"

You do me wrong but still I'm crazy about you
Stay away too long and I can't live without you
Every chance you get you seem to hurt me more and more
But each hurt makes my love stronger than before
I know flowers grow through rain how can love grow through pain
Ain't that peculiar

You tell me lies that should be obvious to me
But I'm so much in love with you baby that I don't want to see
Things you do and say are designed to make me blue
And it's a doggone shame my love for you makes all your lies seem true
If the truth makes love last longer lies make my love stronger
Ain't that peculiar

I cried so much just like a child that lost a toy
Baby, baby, you think these tears I cry are tears of joy
A child can cry so much until you do everything they say
But unlike a child my tears won't help me to get my way
I know love can last through years how can love last through tears
Ain't that peculiar, ain't that peculiar
