Reeves, Jim - I Love You Because Lyrics




I love you because you understand, dear
Every single thing I try to do
You're always there to lend a helping hand, dear
I love you most of all because you're you.

No matter what the world may say about me
I know your love will always see me through
I love you for the way you never doubt me
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you.

I love you because my heart is lighter
Every time I'm walking by your side
I love you because the future's brighter
The door to happiness, you open wide.

No matter what the world may say about me
I know your love will always see me through
I love you for a hundred thousand reasons
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you...

    We played this at our wedding 15 years ago. My parents were attending and later that year my father died of cancer. My mom loved this beautiful song and the way Gentleman Jim sang it .. they danced to this and I can see them together,smiling and laughing as they danced. Now both are gone and I cry when I think about them.

    George Makedon

    You are lucky to have such parents, their memory is power . Now they are closer to God and much closer to you than you think.Be traditional like them !

    Jim Reeve's had one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard.  I could listen to him all day.

  63. Rob van egmond

    top bedankt

  64. Philomena Peterson

    The famous and well loved Jim Reeves. He needs no introduction

  65. Margie Tripp

    My husband died on Dec. 25, 2011 and he was an ardent Jim Reeves fan. I had them play this song at his funeral - it was one of his favorites. We were fortunate enough to have 46 years, 1 month, and 4 days together. Jim Reeves was a favorite of both of us, and they don't have singers like him anymore.

  66. Jimmy Pearce

    No finer voice this side of Heaven.

  67. Steve Houlihan

    He sounds his best with Anita Kerr and her singers.

  68. Kenneth Gustafsson

    Han är död, sa Dagge en sommar kväll 1964 när jag nämnde att Jim Reeves var min idol. Jag var 15 år och mina längtansdrömmar slogs brutalt i kras av min kamrats påstående.
    Men Dagge fick rätt och tiden och åren därefter samlade och sparade jag allt av Jims insjungningar. - Ännu efter alla dessa år har ingen sångartist kunnat mätat sig med Jim Reeves - Eller hur?

  69. Yoakim .Asy

    A very sentimental song, even though it is an old song, but it still has power for surviving for years coming for us who love Jim's songs. It just remind off my childhood in 70s and all my beloved ones who have passed away.

  70. Jessica Davis

    I used to sing this song with my father.. it reminds me of the ultimate love, the kind that is free, non-judgemental and makes you feel warm. I miss him and I miss that love. Tell people you love them before the opportunity is snatched. It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all

  71. Frans CIS

    Gak ada orang Indo disini?? 😢

  72. Jan Haselbekke

    NEVER FORGET YOU JIM REEVES

  73. iRaid VC

    my dads fav singer. i play this to be close to him.

  74. Palitha Jayawardena

    Can any one match this velvet voice after 50 years.....?....

    Glynn Evans

    No Palitha .Jim is a One Off and a legend and inspired many other artists too and sadly taken from us prematurely..Kind regards Glynn n Greetings from Stourbridge West Midlands UK 🌷🌷🌷🤗🤗🤗

  75. Theophilus Egbeogu

    Unequaled, brilliant and will remain in its tapestry an ever-green in all ears that appreciate music.

  76. Fred Davies

    Remember my mam and dad dancing in the kitchen to this . Miss them every day
