About "The Way I Do":
I wrote this in 1980 (yes, I am old) for a girl I was in love with Missy Swetish. I used to get drunk and play it in the dorm basement evry night till I was told to shut up...After Missydied in 1994 I wrote the calling section at the end. I still like this song, it has the innocence of youth.
The Way I Do (For Missy)
c 1980/1998 Dean Madonia

Is there nothing I can do?
Is there nothing I can say?
Is there no gesture I can make,
To make you feel the way I do?
I love you.

I thought this time would be so bad
But I don't really feel that sad
And I'll say this with a sigh
I don't have the energy to cry over,
Over you
But I do

Ooooh.

Is the nothing I can do?
(now that you are so far away)
Is there nothing I can say?
(And all your color's gone to gray)
Is there no gesture I can make?
(I've found the words I want to say)
To make you feel the way I do
Oh, I love you
