Lyrics

I love you, there’s nothing to hide

It’s better than burning inside

I love you, no use to pretend

There! I’ve said it again

I’ve said it, what more can I say?

Believe me, there’s no other way

I love you, I will ’til the end

There! I’ve said it again

I try to drum up

A phrase that would sum up

All that I feel for you

But what good are phrases?

The thought that amazes

Is that you love me

And it’s heavenly

Forgive me for wanting you so

But one thing I want you to know

I’ve loved you since heaven knows when

There! I’ve said it again

Forgive me for wanting you so

But one thing I want you to know

I’ve loved you since heaven knows when

There! I’ve said it again
