I Love You This Much
by Collin Raye



He didn't have the answers
To half the questions his son asked him
A child's mind is a curious thing

But when his son hugged him and said
"Dad you know I love you, how much do you love me?"
Daddy didn't have to think

With his arms open wide just as far as they could go
He said, "As far as I can reach is not enough to show
I would give my life for you, you are my flesh and blood
I love you this much"

She stood there crying
Broken-hearted looking up at him
And said, "Son why are you doing this?"

He looks down at her wanting to hold her
And wipe her tears away,
but he has to leave and that's the way it is
She gave her son one last kiss

With her arms open wide just as far as they could go
She said, "As far as I can reach is not enough to show
I would give my life for you, you are my flesh and blood
I love you this much"

And they raised His broken body above the crowd
Drove in the nails as the rain came down

With His arms open wide just as far as they could go
He said, "As far as I can reach is not enough to show
I would give my life for you, you are my flesh and blood
I love you this much, I love you this much"
