Jimmy’s Notes:
Borrowed this line from a letter Sir Walter Raleigh wrote to the Queen of England begging forgiveness for some practical activity. It sounded more like a title of a Motown tune, and I couldn’t pass it up. I hope Sir Walter didn’t turn over in his grave.

Lyrics:
I've got a question for you
Please grant me an interview
Don't want to read it in a magazine
Don't want to see it on the silver screen
Don't let the craziness tear us apart

I'm down on the knees of my heart
Down here on the knees of my heart

This comes from deep in my soul
Your sweet love has taken control
I'll swim across the ocean if you tell me so
I'll take you to the jump up if you want to go
It never is too late to make a brand new start

I'm down here on the knees of my heart
Down here on the knees of my heart

Oh how I will sing if you give me everything
I live for the day when there's nothing in our way

I will be waiting tonight
You'll find my boat by the light
I'm gonna show you what my love can do
Out on the ocean all alone with you
We'll find a desert island on an ancient chart

Take me from the knees of my heart
Take me from the knees of my heart
Take me from the knees of my heart
Take me from the knees of my heart
