Lyrics:
The sleepless nights, the daily fights
The quick toboggan when you reach the heights
I miss the kisses and I miss the bites
I wish I were in love again

The broken dates, the endless waits
The lovely loving and the hateful hates
The conversation with the flying plates
I wish I were in love again

        No more pain, no more strain
        Now I'm sane, but I would rather be punch-drunk

The pulled out fur of cat and cur
The fine mis-mating of a him and her
I've learned my lesson but I wish I were in love again

The furtive sigh, the blackened eye
The words: "I'll love you 'til the day I die"
The self-deception that believes the lie
I wish I were in love again

When love congeals it soon reveals
The faint aroma of performing seals
The double-crossing of a pair of heels
I wish I were in love again

        No, no more care, no, no despair
        Now I'm all there now but I'd rather be punch-drunk

Believe me, sir, I much prefer
The classic battle of a him and her
I don't like quiet and I wish I were in love again
In love again
In love   again
