ain’t that peculiar lyrics – rufus & chaka khan

you do me wrong but still i’m crazy ’bout you
stay away too long and i can live without you
every chance you get you seem to hurt me more and more
but each hurt makes my love stronger than before

i know flowers grow through rain
but how can love grow through pain

ain’t that peculiar
peculiarity
ain’t that peculiar
peculiar as can be

you tell me lies that you’ll be honest to me
but i’m so much in love with you baby, i don’t want to see
’cause the things you do and say are designed to make me blue
it’s a doggone shame my love for you makes all your lies seem true

if the truth makes love last longer
why do lies make my love stronger

ain’t that peculiar
peculiarity
ain’t that peculiar, baby
peculiar as can be

everybody
come on give me that
everybody

i act just like a child that’s lost his toy
can’t you see these tears i cry are tears of joy
a child can cry so much until you do everything they say
but unlike a child those tear don’t help me to get my way

i know love can last through years
how can love last through tears

ain’t that peculiar
peculiarity
ain’t that peculiar
peculiar as can be

ain’t that peculiar, so peculiar
ain’t that peculiar, so peculiar
ain’t that peculiar, so peculiar
