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.
