STING


Mad About You Lyrics

A stone's throw from Jerusalem
I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
And though a million stars were shining
My heart was lost on a distant planet
That whirls around the April moon
Whirling in an arc of sadness
I'm lost without you
I'm lost without you

Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
And fall into the sea
I'm mad about you
I'm mad about you

And through the dark secluded valleys
I heard the ancient songs of sadness
And every step I thought of you
Every footstep only you
Every star a grain of sand
The leavings of a dried up ocean
Tell me, how much longer?
How much longer?

They say a city in the desert lies
The vanity of an ancient king
But the city lies in broken pieces
Where the wind howls and the vultures sing
These are the works of man
This is the sum of our ambition
It would make a prison of my life
If you became another's wife
With every prison blown to dust
My enemies walk free
I'm mad about you
I'm mad about you

And I've never in my life
Felt more alone than I do now
Although I claim dominions
Over all I see
It means nothing to me
There are no victories
In all our histories
Without love

A stone's throw from Jerusalem
I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
And though a million stars were shining
My heart was lost on a distant planet
That whirls around the April moon
Whirling in an arc of sadness
I'm lost without you
I'm lost without you

And though you hold the keys to ruin
Of everything I see
With every prison blown to dust,
My enemies walk free
Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
And fall into the sea
I'm mad about you
I'm mad about you

Sting's best work. Can love be sang of in a more beautiful way? The strength of desire between two souls can really be immense. Hope all of you can feel this someday. Remember, the power isn't ours.

Sting the legend. Only great intellects realise your depth and appreciate your lyrics. You are an icon. only very few are deep enough to flow with your tide.
