I Don't Know How To Love Him

In case you didn't notice, it's a different video on the sidebar. It's Yvonne Elliman singing "I Don't Know How To Love Him", a scene from the 1973 original movie, "Jesus Christ Superstar". According to Ric, who made this video for YouTube, this was shot in low light and candles. It was supposed to be dark.


...Close your eyes close your eyes
and forget all about us tonight.


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,
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,
In very many ways,
He's just one more.
Should I bring him down?
Should I scream and shout?
Should I speak of love,
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.
I'm the one who's always been
So calm, so cool, no lover's fool,
Running every show.
He scares me so.
I never thought I'd come to this.
What's it all about?
Yet, if he said he loved me,
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.
I want him so.
I love him so.
