Lyrics 

You know that I want you babe

You know that I need you

You know that I love you

Just say it

Am I giving enough?

Is it all that should be?

When water gets rough

Will you still swim with me?

So afraid to come close

And maybe too soon

And maybe too much

For you to consume

And I wanna know if I

Can live inside your world

And I wanna know if I

Can give it to you girl

You know that I want you say it

You know that I need you say it

You know that I love you say it

Our love just goes on and on and on

You know that I want you say it

You know that I need you say it

You know that I love you say it

My love just goes on and on and on

I gave you all that you need

There’s no better place you can be

And I know that in time

You will believe in me

So please hold out your hand

And lets exchange these golden bands

‘Cause I want you in my life

I want you to be my wife

[Repeat chorus]

My girl so special

I want to give it all to you

Loving you on and on

My girl so special

I want to give it all to you

Loving you on and on

[Repeat chorus]
