A Simple Phrase

 Somewhere in your life
I'm sure you know the feeling
of wishing there was someone
to tell of all your dreams

Me, I searched
for more than just one lifetime
for this precious understanding
for this precious queen of mine

But I, for one
never knew the meaning
of these simple little phrases
like, I love you

'Cause my eyes were closed
I never knew the feeling
but now that they are opened
I've never felt more real

Soft as the rain
clean as the snow
I found her in a garden
that only lovers know

And the light that she gives
is gentle understanding
of these simple little phrases
like I love you
