Lyrics

I want you more than anything in the worldYou mean more to me than any other girlNow he’s with you things you do with him we’ve done them for so longI love you more today than he can from now on

I kissed your tears away when you were sadHeld you close felt your warm love when you were gladSo no matter how much love he has for you or how longI love you more today than he can from now on
