or
Barenaked Ladies

Friend, this shouldn't be the way things end
But then, a break is just around the bend.
And when you tell me as I leave
You're scared you'll never see my face again

Well, I'm not sure it's the truth
You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you

But I can and I will and I do
You write - I read your letters every night
All right, I skim then just to be polite.
I fight embarrassment and shame

The mention of your name makes me turn white
But guilt still makes me refrain
You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you

You don't think I can love you
But I can and I will and I do
I imagine you think I don't think of you
You know you couldn't be more wrong

If good intentions paved the road that gets me through
Then I've got a six-lane highway
And I intend to someday
Do all the things I say I can and I will and I do

Hey - it's hard for me to go away
Okay, I know it's not adult
But it's just as difficult for me to stay
And anyway you say

You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you love you love you
But I can and I will and I do. I can and I will and I do.
