Why I Love You (Louis Toliver Jr)


"Why I Love You"


I love the way people misinterpret you as guarded
When I know that your walls are down for me
No matter what mood I’m in, you make me laugh
Through the hardest times, you can get a smile out of me

I always let you touch me in ways not just anyone can
You know all the sides of me that I try to hide
I’m not vulnerable to you, instead I’m strengthened by you

The reasons are so complex, but the feeling is simple
It’s all about the core of you that keeps me thinking

“I love you”
