3. How Do I?


How do I tell you how I feel?

How do I show you that it's real?

How do I thank you, for standing right by me?

How do I love you, the way that you oughta be loved?

How do I know that this is it?

The only one that ever fit?

How do I keep it from, simply imploding?

How do I keep all, that's good from eroding?


I wanna give you everything and I know you can't wait around,

I know you've been wronged, I know love can sting, and I don't wanna let you down,

I know that actions speak louder than words, and I know we've been here before,

Guess I'm a bit scared of how much it can ache, but I know I feel this to the core, to the core...


How do I tell you what I fear?

How do I show you, I'm sincere?

How do I say it, and sum it up neatly?

How do I tell you, I love you completely?


I wanna make you happy and free, and I wanna ease all of your pain,

I know sometimes that a guy like me, is enough to drive anyone insane,

Backwards and forwards, we've gone all around, together and then apart,

I know it's a lot, but with all that I got, I'm gonna love you with all of my heart, all of my heart
