Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: I Love You Because
Subject: ADD: I Love You Because (Leon Payne)
Here is a slightly different version of the lyrics, with chords deleted to make searching easier. I marked this thread for harvesting, but note that popular songs take second priority in the Digital Tradition, which has an emphasis on traditional music.
Sure is a good song, though.

I LOVE YOU BECAUSE
(Leon Payne, 1949)

I love you because you understand, dear
Ev'ry single thing I try to do
You're always there to lend a helping hand, dear
I love you most of all because you're you.

No matter what the world may say about me
I know your love will always see me through
I love you for the way you never doubt me
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you.

I love you because my heart is lighter
Ev'ry time I'm walking by your side
I love you because the future's brighter
The door to happiness you open wide.

No matter what may be the style or season
I know your heart will always be true
I love you for a hundred thousand reasons
But, most of all I love you 'cause you're you.
