Mad About You Lyrics

by Anita Baker

A stone's throw from Jerusalem
I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
And through a million stars were shining

My heart was lost on a distant planet
That whirls around the April moon
Whirling in an arc of sadness

I'm lost without you, I'm lost without you
Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
And fall into the sea

I'm mad about you, I'm mad about you
And from the dark secluded valleys
I heard the ancient songs of sadness

But every step, I thought of you
Every footstep only you
And every star a grain of sand

The leavings of a dried up ocean
Tell me, how much longer? How much longer?
They say a city in the desert lies

The vanity of an ancient king
But the city lies in broken pieces
Where the wind howls and the vultures sing

These are the works of man
This is the sum of our ambition
It would make a prison of my life

If you became another's wife
With every prison blown to dust
My enemies walk free

I'm mad about, you I'm mad about you
And I have never in my life
Felt more alone than I do now

Although I claim dominions over all I see
It means nothing to me
There are no vitories

In all our histories, without love
A stone's throw from Jerusalem
I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight

And through a million stars were shining
My heart was lost on a distant planet
That whirls around the April moon

Whirling in an arc of sadness
I'm lost without you, I'm lost without you
And though you hold the keys to ruin

Of everything I see
With every prison blown to dust
My enemies walk free

Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
And fall into the sea
I'm mad about you, I'm mad about you
