A Simple Love Song

I wanted to write a song for you
to tell you just how I feel
now for the first time
it’s not just a dream
this love that I have is real
I wanted to put these thoughts of you
into the words of a special song
the feeling is there and the music flows
but the words just keep coming out wrong

it’s not easy writing love songs
without words that you’ve used before
it’s not easy writing love songs
when you finally know for sure
I’ve been sitting here for hours
trying to think of something new
but three simple words keep coming back
I love you

I know there’s no need to say a word
as I’m sure that by now you know
it’s just that I have this need to say
the words that my feelings show
for thousands of years now
poets have tried
to soar on the wings of a bird
but from all of the beauty
that flows from their pens
we come back to the same three words
