“More Than You’ll Ever Know” Lyrics

I know living with me ain’t always easy
I dam up emotions some men just let flow
But girl when you’re not by my side I feel a part of me has died
‘Cause I love you more than you’ll ever know
More than life, more than I’ve ever loved before
It’s absurd and beyond words, I couldn’t want you more
And when I try to pour my heart out to you I’m not sure it shows
That I love you more than you’ll ever know

I’m sure you’ve heard it said hearts have windows
But mine has doors a painful past has closed
Unless someday they open wide revealing feelings locked inside
I’ll love you more than you’ll ever know

Even when I pour my heart out to you I’m not sure it shows
That I love you more than you’ll ever know

Yes I love you more than you’ll ever know
