Skeeter Davis – But You Know I Love You lyrics

When the morning sun streaks across my room
And I'm wakened up from another dream of you
Yes I'm on the road once again it seems
All I've left behind is a chain of broken dreams
But you know I love you yes I love you oh I love you.

How I wish that love was all we'd need to live
What a life we'd have cause I've got so much to give
And it seems so wrong deep inside my heart
That that dollar sign could be keeping us apart
But you know I love you yes I love you oh I love you.

And if only I could find my way back to the time
When the problems of this life had not yet crossed our minds
All the answer could be found in children's nursery rhymes
I'd come running back to you I'd come running back to you.

But you know we can't live on dreams alone
And to sing my songs I must leave you all alone
But I made this choice many years ago
Now the traveling life is the only life I know
But you know I love you yes I love you oh I love you...
