The Words I Love You

This song is by Chris de Burgh and appears on the album The Road To Freedom (2004) and on the compilation album Now And Then (2008).

There are those who think that love comes
With a lifetime guarantee,
But we know from those around us,
That this may not always be,
It's the simple things
That come between
A father and a son,
But when they try to talk,
The knives are out
Before they have begun;

Well that was me,
And I have seen
The light that shines for eternity,
Because I learned to say
The words "I love you;"

So many hearts have been broken
By the lies of history,
And so many arms are still open
For that final mystery;
We must show respect
For all the rest,
And what a man believes,
And the one who died
Upon the cross,
Well he is the one for me,

And he said
"Come with me
And you will see
The light that shines for eternity,
Be strong and learn to say
The words "I love you;"

And this endless road that we are on
Just keeps on going round,
But there's one destination
That always is here to be found;

So come with me,
And you will see
The light that shines for eternity,
Be strong and learn to say
The words "I love you,"
Be strong and learn to say
The words "I love you,"
The words "I love you,"
The words "I love you,"
The words "I love you."
