Lyrics

Like the wind that shakes the bough
She moves me with a smile
The difficult I’ll do right now
The impossible will take a little while

I say I’ll move the mountains
And I’ll move the mountains
If she wants them out of the way
Crazy she calls me
Sure, I’m crazy
Crazy in love, I say

I say I’ll go through fire
And I’ll go through fire
If she wants it, so will it be
Crazy she calls me
Sure, I’m crazy
Crazy in love, you see

Like the wind that shakes the bough
She moves me with a smile
The difficult I’ll do right now
The impossible will take a little while

I say I’ll care forever
And I mean forever
If I have to hold up the sky
Crazy she calls me
Sure, I’m crazy
Crazy in love am I
