"I Love You Because" Lyrics

ELVIS - "Solo Performance"

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.

ELVIS & LISA MARIE – "Duet/Harmony"

I love you for the way you never doubt me.

But most of all I love you 'cause you're you.
No matter what may be the style or season,

I know your heart will always be true.

I love you for a hundred thousand reasons,

But most of all I love you 'cause you're you.
