"Music to inspire and nourish the soul."

Loves Me; Loves Me Not

"Loves Me; Loves Me Not" conveys a common theme of young love—that of a broken heart and the question of whether to trust again. This tale is told to a light-hearted melody. The song was inspired one summer day by one of my young, elementary school-age sons who sat on the lawn with a rose, of all things, in his hand. As he picked off the petals, one by one, he said (in a very overly dramatic, mournful voice), " "She loves me; she loves me not . . ." many times over.

Lyrics
Loves Me; Loves Me Not
This week he loves me; last week he loved me not.
Next week I wonder, wonder what it'll be.
This week he loves me; last week he loved me not,
This crazy love, it makes no sense to me.

Last night he called me, said that he had missed me.
Asked me if I could go out Friday night.
Said that he was sorry for the way he'd treated me,
And if I come he'll make me feel all right.

This week he loves me; last week he loved me not.
Next week I wonder, wonder what it'll be.
This week he loves me; last week he loved me not,
This crazy love, it makes no sense to me.

Last week he hurt me; went out with another.
He told me he was going out alone.
I went to a movie, saw them there together.
I felt so bad, I cried the whole way home.

This week he loves me; last week he loved me not.
Next week I wonder, wonder what it'll be.
This week he loves me; last week he loved me not,
This crazy love, it makes no sense to me.

If I had a daisy, maybe it could help me
Know whether I should trust him one more time.
Ere I forgive him, I'd pick all the petals
One by one as I sing this little rhyme:

This week he loves me; last week he loved me not.
Next week I wonder, wonder what it'll be.
This week he loves me; last week he loved me not,
This crazy love, it makes no sense to me.

This week he loves me . . .
This week he loves me . . .
Last week he loved me not.
