Because I Do

From the Michael Andrew album Play It Again
Words and music by Michael Andrew Itzoe

Wrote this a year or so before heading into the studio to record Play It Again. Probably the first song written on the album, though not necessarily for the album. This is my "Kenny Rogers song," as I wrote it with "She Believes In Me" in mind.

Lyrics

Don't ask me why I look into your eyes at times
And I hold you tight
I'm thinking about all the good things
And all the bad things I'll do without
It's a feeling, a feeling I know we both share
Hmm, being together
And I love you, yes I do
Don't ask me why, I'll say because I do

Don't ask me why I do my best to make you smile
Why it feels so right
I can't recall a single reason
Because I love you and that's all
And I need you to pick me up if I should fall
Hmm, to be there for me
I can't tell you why I love you
Don't ask me why, I'll say because I do

I never thought love could act this way
I never thought I could be afraid
But if I do, I know I will find my guiding light
In loving you

It's a feeling, a feeling I know we both share
Hmm, being together
And I love you, yes I do
Don't ask me why, I'll say because I do
I can't tell you why I love you
Don't ask me why, I'll say because I do
And I love you, yes I do
Don't ask me why, I'll say because I do
I can't tell you why I love you
Don't ask me why, I'll say
Because I do
