I Do It For Your Love

ŠPaul Simon, released on Still Crazy After All These Years, 1975


We were married on a rainy day

The sky was yellow

And the grass was gray

We signed the papers

And we drove away

I do it for your love


The rooms were musty

And the pipes were old

All that winter we shared a cold

Drank all the orange juice

That we could hold

I do it for your love


Found a rug

In an old junk shop

And I brought it home to you

Along the way the colors ran

The orange bled the blue


The sting of reason

The splash of tears

The northern and the southern


Love emerges and it disappears

I do it for your love

I do it for your love
