I couldn't love you any more than I do
Or hold you closer to my heart
There's no other way to say it that might be new
It ain't inside some store bought card.

Sometimes a man can speak
And fumble with the words
I wish my heart could speak to yours.....

Cause You say it better
You say it right
You call me your best friend
Your partner for life
It's in every letter
Or card you might write
Yeah you say it better
You say it right


Another year goes by
A night to celebrate
We share a dance , a drink , a laugh
I need that perfect line
That fits the perfect date
The one you always seem to have

You learn from me I learn from you
But it comes down to the (d) truth
It's pretty simple .. baby I love you...

Chorus - (But ...)

Very soulful piece with really good arrangement and production.

Nice Record Overall
