I can't imagine life Without you by my side This is love babe that I'm feeling And I'm hoping that you're feeling the same way Things tend to slip my mind Like how you like to wine and dine babe With romantic lights you mean a lot to me In so many ways Lately Have I told you I love you Lately Have I told you you still mean the world to me Lately Have I told you I love you I'll be your wishing well Tell me what you want babe Don't think twice of our love I say these things because I love you but it's hard to explain And I'm hoping that you're feeling the same You know that all of my Feelings are inside And verbally I tend to forget How much I L-O-V-E U really means Lately Have I told you I love you Lately Have I told you you still mean the world to me Lately Have I told you I love you I'll be your wishing well Tell me what you want babe Try your hardest to deal Yes I forgot but you know how I feel Things slip my mind baby that's a fact Tell me you love me And I'll tell you back baby Lately Have I told you I love you Lately Have I told you you still mean the world to me Lately Have I told you I love you I'll be your wishing well Tell me what you want babe
