Love Song

The love I feel inside for you
It bubbles in my heart
It rips the seams of sadness
And tears my fears apart
And when at last it surfaces
It forms into a song
That I'd like to share with anyone
Who'd want to sing along

Can I sing you a  love song
Do you care if I sing out of key
Can I sing you a love song
The one you gave to me

I must disguise the way I feel
That's how it's got to be
But when you're sitting by my side
It struggles to be free
It tickles me with lyrics
And caresses with a tune
Then somehow it explodes into
A song of love for you

Can I sing you a  love song
Do you care if I sing out of key
Can I sing you a love song
The one you gave to me

I'll be content to wear my mask
And dream my someday dreams
I'll write my songs and be your friend
As days turn into weeks
But if you hear me sing a song
Of love and hope and truth
Then listen well, make no mistake
The song is meant for you

Can I sing you a  love song
Do you care if I sing out of key
Can I sing you a love song
The one you gave
Yes, the one you gave
The one you gave
To me
