Donny Hathaway – I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know lyrics

If I ever leave you,
You can say I told you so!
And if I ever hurt you,
You know I hurt myself as well

Is that any way for a man to carry on,
Do you think I want my loved one gone,
Said I love you,
More than you'll ever know,
More than you'll ever know!

When I wasn't making much money,
You know where my paycheck went,
You know I brought it home to ya baby,
And I never spent a red cent...

Is that any way for a man to carry on,
Do you think I want my loved one gone,
Said I love you,
More than you'll ever know
Yea-hey, more than you'll ever know

Now listen to this...

I'm not trying to be,
Just any kind of man, no I aint,
I'm just trying to be somebody,
You can love, trust and understand,
I know, I know, I know that I can be,
The part of you that no one else could see

But I got to hear ya say, I got to hear ya say
It's Alright!

I'm only flesh and blood,
But I can be anything that you demand,
I can be king of everythang,
Or just a tiny grain of sand,
I tell you

Is that anyway for a man to carry on
Do you think that I wants my loved one gone
I love you more than you'll ever know
I said I love you

I Love you
I Love you
Hey hey
Don't want nobody else...
Don't need nobody else...

Fade out

    Love to me is to give always without waiting your beloved to give you anything in return, to dream even you know well that your dreams will never come true, to wish the best for your beloved even if you are not part of her life, and to be always ready to help her to make her dreams come true even if her dreams is to be in love with somebody else not you.
