Song Information
By: Dolly Parton
Original Appearance: Dolly: The Seeker & We Used To
Compilations: None
Alternate Versions: None

I lie in bed beside you and watch you while you sleep
And wonder who I was before I loved you
Lying here beside you feeling so complete
Thinking how I love and need and trust you

Chorus:

Because I love you
I'm a brand new person now because you love me
I can face the world and have because I love you
Because you love me, because I love you

Sweeter even still is knowing that you're lying there
And that you'll soon awake and reach to hold me
And anyway you want me, that's the way that I am yours
Love as strong as this lets you control me

Repeat Chorus
