What You Are
Listen Baby, by the time you get this letter I'll be gone But I left something for you on the pillow Put this tape in Press play I love you It's four in the morning, I'm sitting here at night I'm writing you this song to say what's on my mind I'm leaving in an hour, and you won't be up in time to say goodbye, whoa I'm putting this on tape (baby, you're wonderful) I really mean it, babe (more than you will ever know) I wish that I could stay (but I gotta go) I'll be back, but in the meantime Keep in mind [Chorus] (What you are) Something too big for words And it's my pleasure to love you, baby, for better or worse ('Cause what you are) A beautiful mother to your kids Sometimes, it slips my mind, so in case I forget (Girl, you are) you're better than (anything) I ever had (You are) the perfect love (Never give you up because you are) My heart, my soul, my breath Take it all until there's nothing left 'Cause, baby, you are Now, no man has ever loved his woman More than I love you Girl, you know it's true And no man can ever say he does his woman better than I do you That ain't true (here's what I do) Send you fresh-cut roses every day of the week Take you shopping whenever More importantly Wrap my loving arms around you To reassure everything I felt that first night I feel it more [Chorus: x2] (You are) (You are) (You are) (Girl, you are) (You are) (You are)
