Y is for YOU



YOU

I love the way you look at me,
Your eyes so bright and blue.
I love the way you kiss me,
Your lips so soft and smooth.



I love the way you make me so happy,
And the ways you show you care.
I love the way you say, "I Love you,"
And the way you're always there.



I love the way you touch me,
Sending chills down my spine.
I love that you are with me,
And glad that you are mine.


I love the way you lead me through a door
I love the way you will never ignore
My silly whims and girly ways
That makes you smile throughout the day

You call us beauty and the beast
You came down from the North East
To live with these silly Southern ways
Your accent reverts back to your younger days

You were strong and gave me strength
Your shoulders broad to take my load
You showed me the right path at my crossroads
You showed me love one hundred percent

You asked me to be your wife
I will love you all my life
April holds our anniversary date
I am so pleased to be your mate.
 


This is OUR SONG
From the album Come On, Come On
Sung By Mary Chapin Carpenter and Joe Diffie
To hear you say my name, to see you search my eyes
To feel you touch my hand, it more than satisfies.
If I was not the first, just say I'll be the last
It's too much to expect, but it's not too much to ask.

Now I can only dream of being all you need
And I can only try to be the reason why
You think about today and forget about the past
It's too much to expect, but it's not too much to ask.

Now I can only dream of being all you need
And I can only try to be the reason why
You think about today 'cause the past is just the past
It's too much to expect, but it doesn't hurt to ask
It's too much to expect, but it's not too much to ask

Songwriters: SCHLITZ, DONALD ALAN JR. / CARPENTER, MARY CHAPIN
