Lyle Lovett - I Married Her Just Because She Looks Like You Lyrics




Its not the words
You know I'll always love you
It's not the words
I wish that I could stay
It's more the way your lips looked
As you spoke them
And how the moonlight fell upon your face
I married her just because she looks like you

And for every time you said no
She says honey I'll be glad to
And for every time you left me
She says darling I'll be there
It's not the words
You'll get over me
That made my dreams come true
I married her just because she looks like you

And if I had not searched for you
I never would have found her
And if I had not loved you
I would never have known love
It's not the words
Please try to forget me
That made my dreams come true
I married her just because she looks like you

And for every time you knocked me down
She reaches out to help me
And for every time you cursed me
She says darling I love you
It's not the words
Time heals everything
That made my dreams come true
I married her just because she looks like you

    Yeah a sure great song. Thanks for listening Josephine. Very cold here in Virginia. Hope 2018 is going good for you so far.

    Brent in Malta we are lucky that we have a very sunny climate. We get over 9 months a year of sunny weather. I prefer the winter season because our summer is very humid, sticky and way too hot. Summer always makes me feel so sick. August is the hottest month with temperatures that reaches 50C at midday.
    This year’s winter season is windy and dry. Not good for crops, farmers are always praying for rain.
    My year started good thanks. I look for a better year than the last one. (Last year my mum passed away and I lost two of my beloved pets aswell, my dog Sasha and my tabby cat Peggy Sue.)
    Happy New Year to you too. I wish you a nice day and a joyful blessed new week ahead.

    Wow. Buy me a ticket to visit you Josephine! LoL sounds like it's nice there in Malta! i wish I lived where it didn't get too cold ever. I do hope this is a great year for you and it sure sounds like it'll be better than 2017 was to you. I had a real bad worse ever year in 2017 my ex-fiance passed away and it's been so hard to deal with. Nice to be done with that year finally. And hope you have a nice Monday a wonderful week.
