They sure don't sing them like that anymore

 Engelbert Humperdinck

How I love you



You hold me in your eyes
In your own special way
I wonder how you know
The things I never say

I can't imagine life
Without you by my side
The power of your love
Is all I need tonight

I know there have been times
That I have caused you pain
I'd turn them all around
If I could start again

There's something I must say
I know it's overdue
The sweetest thing I've known
Forever called my own
Begins and ends with you

How I love you
How I love you

The softness of your lips
The colour of your hair
The memory of your touch
Remains when you're not there

The echoes of your laughter
When I'm feeling blue
The meaning of my life
It all begins with you

So come into my arms
Lay down by my side
The moon is always there

To keep our love alight

I've reached so very high
For everything that's mine
And at the top is you
I want you for all time
A dream forever new

How I love you
How I love you

The softness of your lips
The colour of your hair
The memory of your touch
Remains when you're not there

The echoes of your laughter
When I'm feeling blue
The meaning of my life
It all begins with you

So come into my arms
Lay down by my side
The moon is always there
To keep our love alight

You know me like a book
You've read a thousand times
We know each other's hearts
We read each other's mind
This feeling's always new

How I love you
How I love you

The softness of your lips
The colour of your hair
The memory of your touch
Remains when you're not there

The echoes of your laughter
When I'm feeling blue
The meaning of my life
It all begins with you

Glad you enjoyed it. I can't tell you how many times I heard it yesterday, lolll.

@Isobel
But you have to hear it (in case you haven't). God the man has a voice. I closed my eyes after the 5th glass of Scotch and I swear I thought it was me singing...

Most of the time I only listen to oldies.... thankfully we have a radio channel that specializes in that, with sweeping love songs post-10PM.

I can't stand today's crap.

Post 10PM... a glass of wine and a beautiful...

That's what life is all about :-)
