Now if I said it real pretty in a pretty rhyme
Well, does your mind get cloudy, that's a dirty crime
Does it do things any good to tell you
That I'm standing here because—I love you

You say the voice is soothing, got those hypnotic eyes
But man I wouldn't want to hand you any alibis
You can blame it all on what you can
But do you see just where I am — I love you

I had a flash, I saw you crying in the night
I said a prayer, I saw you walking in the light
And you were saying how it all once was
How your life has changed because — He loves you
And then you turned and told someone
Who wouldn't believe you when you said — I love you

Now if I find it rough going in expressing myself
And between the lines, it's coming from somebody else
Don't you leave it altogether, put this upon the shelf—
I said, I love you

Now if I said it real pretty in a pretty rhyme
Well, does your mind stay cloudy, that's a dirty crime
Well, does it do things any good to tell you
That I'm standing here because—I love you
Well, does it do things any good to tell you
That I'm standing here because—I love you
Does it do things any good to tell you
That I'm standing here because—I love you—love you—yes I do
I said, I love you—love you—yes I do...
