When You Tell Me, “I Love You”             words and music by Hank Easton

Verse 1:

Some people say love has a way, it conquers all, topples walls

You know I think it’s true, ‘cause when you tell me “I love you”

It doesn’t matter what we do

Wind whispers through the pines and it sweeps across my face,

It tickles my brow – the scent I can’t describe

It has no name – just perfect in every way –

Chorus 1:

Just like your eyes –Just like your mind - God made it so

Just like your hug – it’s like a drug - I can’t say no

Um um you’re good  - you know you should – stay here tonight –

‘Cause when you tell me “I love you”, I love you too

Verse 2:

We could be walking in the rain, in the sleet, in the snow

But if you’re with me it doesn’t matter where we go – just let that winter wind blow

The water drips across my face, down my back, between my toes

And every place it goes it heals my woes

Chorus 2:

Just like life it flows - into the past – nothing lasts – God made it so –

It goes so fast  - we’ll make it last - this much I know –

Um um you’re good you know you should - stay here tonight –

‘Cause when you tell me “I love you”, I love you too.

Bridge:

You don’t know it but I’m watchin’ you

Hope you can feel that my love is true

Just take my hand and I’ll show you how it feels

Two hearts entwined – that’s yours and mine

‘Cause when you tell me “I love you”, I love you too               

Verse 3/Chorus 3:

The sun shines on our love today – just like I prayed – it lights our way

And you can see it brings a smile upon my face

Like the warmth of your embrace it fills my soul

Won't grow old – this much I know

Day fades to night  - suns out of sight  - but still shines bright

Um Um you’re good you know you should stay here tonight

‘Cause when you tell me,  “I love you”, I love you too
