Love Songs  





And I love you so   
The people ask me how   
How I've lived 'til now   
    I tell them I don't know   

I guess they understand   
How lonely life has been   
But life began again   
The day you took my hand   

And yes I know, how lonely life can be   
The shadows follow me   
And the night won't set me free   
But I don't let the evening get me down   
Now that you're around me   

And you love me too   
Your thoughts are just for me   
You set my spirit free   
I'm happy that you do   

The book of life is brief   
And once a page is read   
All but life is dead   
That is my belief   

And yes I know, how lonely life can be   
The shadows follow me   
And the night won't set me free   
But I don't let the evening get me down   
Now that you're around me
