Lilies for My Sweetheart

I don’t have to know a single thing about love
to feel the warmth of my woman’s touch.
Just like I don’t have to know what it is about need
to know I need her so much.

Now I may never understand what Mother Earth is saying
in her message of the flowers that grow.
But I know I bring lilies for my sweetheart
to say I love her so.

(Chorus)
Yes I know she could leave me tomorrow.
Walk away like so many loves before.
But no no no that won’t stop me from giving.
I give all that I have to give, till she don’t want no more.

I don’t have to know a single thing about romance
to know she needs to see the depth of my affection.
Just like I don’t have to understand matters of the heart
to know that heart needs protection.

Now I don’t have to know a single thing about expression
when I can’t find the words to let my feelings show
I bring lilies for my sweetheart.
To say I love her so.

(Chorus)
Yes I know she could leave tomorrow.
Walk away like she never cared for me.
But no no no that won’t stop me from giving.
Cause I’ll bring lilies for my sweetheart
Whoever she may be.
Whoever she may be.

To say I love her so
To say I love her so
To say I love her so.
