Liner Notes: 

PROMPT: wonder

Lyrics: 

C
do you ever wonder
why I love you so
if you wonder I want
you to know
all of the reasons why
all of the reasons I do
all of the reasons
I will always
love you

V1
the compassion
deep in your eyes
justice and love
in every word

the humility
of all your thoughts
respect and peace
for all that’s heard

the understanding
that you bring with
wisdom and insight
to this world

C
do you ever wonder
why I love you so
if you wonder I want
you to know
all of the reasons why
all of the reasons I do
all of the reasons
I will always
love you

V2
the generosity
for all you give
talent and time
for old and new

the openness
to diverse thoughts
courage and strength
to embrace truth

the gentleness
of your kind touch
conviction and care
in all you do

C
do you ever wonder
why I love you so
if you wonder I want
you to know
all of the reasons why
all of the reasons I do
all of the reasons
I will always
love you

OUTRO
the are so many more reasons
I could numerate
but suffice it to say I love you
because of your
inner beauty and grace

Another awesome set of lyrics from Liz! I love how the chorus offers the promise of reasons for your love and then the verses deliver the specifics! As always these are structured so nicely and ready to be sung! Great work on these!!

Another fantastic lyric Liz! A "How do I love thee, let me count the ways" type of lyric that I definitely relate to. A lovely chorus, and the outro is icing on the cake. Nice skirmish!

You write such great love songs. I think it's because they're real. I can feel it.

Yeah, there's many, many lovely thoughts to honor this person. It's very heartfelt. I like how the chorus repeats "all of the reasons" to emphasize what's being said throughout. Great job on the skirmish!
