i love you because lyrics – al martino

i love you because
al martino
written by leon payne

peaked at # 3 in 1963

i love you because you understand, dear
every single thing i try to do
you’re always there to lend a helping hand, dear
i love you most of all because you’re you.

no matter what the world may say about me
i know your love will always see me through

i love you for the way you never doubt me.
but, most of all i love you ’cause you’re you.

(i love you because the future’s brighter)
(the door to happiness shall open wide)

no matter what the world may say about me
i know your love will always see me through

i love you for a hundred thousand reasons,
but, most of all i love you ’cause you’re you.
