[] Tim Rice/ Andrew Lloyd Weber, 1970


I don't know how to love him  [1]

(Mary Magdalene’s song)


I don't know how to love him

What to do how to move him

I've been changed yes really changed

In these past few days when I've seen myself

5       I seem like someone else


I don't know how to take this

I don't see why he moves me

He's a man, he's just a man

And I've had so many men before

10     in very many ways

He's just one more


Should I bring him down

Should I scream and shout

Should I speak of love

15     Let my feelings out

I never thought I'd come to this

What's it all about ?


Don't you think it's rather funny

I should be in this position ?

20     I'm the one who's always been

so calm, so cool, no lover's fool

running every show

He scares me so


Yet, if he said he loved me

25     I'd be lost, I'd be frightened

I couldn't cope, just couldn't cope

I'd turn my head I'd back away I

wouldn't want to know

He scares me so

30     I want him so.
