Irving Berlin – Maybe It's Because lyrics

Maybe it's because the kiss you gave me, touched my heart and went right through.
I can't tell you why, I only know that I fell helplessly in love with you.
How I fell in love with you!
I could say you're grand and therefore I care for you so.
But there is a why and wherefore and I'd like to know.
Maybe it's because the star I wished on, made a certain wish come true.
Or it just should be that you were meant for me, and maybe I was meant for you.
Maybe it's because the song we danced to, told a story old and new.
I can't figure out just why it came about.

    This is NOT the BERLIN lyrics . His song was originally titled "Maybe I Love You Too Much" but since the 1st line was - Maybe (it's because) I love you too much at some point in time those words were ADDED to the title.
    Another song written by Johnny Scott & Harry Ruby with the title, "Maybe It's Because" is the one containing the lyrics "Maybe it's because the kiss you gave me, touched my heart & went right thru" Please correct this. It is very confusing.
