​I Married Her Just Because She Looks Like You

This song is by Lyle Lovett and appears on the album Lyle Lovett And His Large Band (1989).

It's not the words, you know I'll always love you
It's not the words, I wish that I could stay
It's more the way your lips looked as you spoke them
And how the moonlight fell upon your face
I married her just because she looks like you

And for every time you said no she says, "Honey, I'll be glad to"
And for every time you left me she says, "Darling, I'll be there"
It's not the words you'll get over me
That made my dreams come true
I married her just because she looks like you

And if I had not searched for you I never would have found her
And if I had not loved you I would never have known love
It's not the words, please try to forget me
That made my dreams come true
I married her just because she looks like you

And for every time you knocked me down she reaches out to help me
And for every time you cursed me she says, "Darling, I love you"
It's not the words, time heals everything
That made my dreams come true
I married her just because she looks like you
I married her just because she looks like you
