To Know You Is To Love You

Lyrics

To know you is to love you
But to know me is not that way you see
Yet you made me yeah so happy
That my love for you grows endlessly

When I am sad and feeling down
You always comfort me
When I am sad and feeling down
You always comfort me

Baby, to know you is to love you
You smile when I see your face
'Cause there ain't no one this earth
Baby, could ever, ever take your place

When I am sad and feeling down
You always comfort me
When I am sad and feeling down
You always comfort me

Oh, To know you is to love you
Is the same as being free as the wind
For the power of your loving
To be strong to hold it safe within

To know you is to love you
To see you blowing free in the breeze
The power of your loving
I never found a woman like you
That could be my lover

And my best friend
I know you and I think I love you
I know you and I think I love you
I know you and can't you feel our love

Just growing, growing, growing
Growing, growing, growing

Hey, I know you and I think I love you

I know you and I think I love you
I know you and can't you feel our love

Just growing, growing, growing
Growing, growing, growing

I know you and I think I love you
I know you and I think I love you
I know you and can't you feel our love

Just growing, growing, growing
Growing, growing, hey doggone it, baby
I know you and I think I love you
I know you and I think I love you
And I think you love me, too
Mm baby, I know you.
