It’s Not Easy To Say Why I Love You

Written by Doug Harvey

 


It’s not just your money and it’s not just your style
It’s not just that sunny and impudent smile
And it’s not just because we walked down the aisle
It’s not easy to say why I love you

It’s not just the zodiac, the moon and the stars
It’s not just the limit on your gold MasterCard
It’s not just your taste in horses and cars
It’s not easy to say why I love you

Perhaps it’s because it’s all of these things
Perhaps it’s the tune that happiness sings
Perhaps it’s because you love me so hard
Perhaps it’s because you are who you are

It’s not just your wardrobe and drop-dead good looks
It’s not those Continental dinners that you cook
And it’s not those compromising photos that you took
It’s not easy to say why I love you

It’s not just your figure that does it to me
It’s not just your haughty genealogy
It’s not your cum laude Ivy League degrees
It’s not easy to say why I love you
