Favorite Songs: But You Know I Love You

For years, my job involved a lot of traveling, and this song always seemed like the perfect love song for the traveling life. This is Alison Krauss and Union Station.

Lyrics:

When the mornin’ sun
Streaks across my room
And I’m wakin’ up
From another dream of you

When I’m on the road
Once again it seems
And all that’s left behind
Is a chain of broken dreams

But you know I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, I love you

How I wish that love
Was all we need to live
What a life we’d have
‘Cause I’ve got so much to give

But it seems so wrong
Deep inside my heart
That the dollar sign
Should be keepin’ us apart

But you know I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, I love you

And if only I could find my way back to the time
When the problems of this life had not yet crossed your mind
And the answers could be found in children’s nursery rhymes
I’d come runnin’ back to you
I’d come runnin’ back to you

But you know we can’t
Live on dreams alone
And to pay the rent
I must leave you all alone

‘Cause I made my choice
Many years ago
And now this travelin’ life
It’s the only life I know

But you know I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, I love you

But you know I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, I love you
