Happy Anniversary to my Love

Twenty-three years, and I'm ready for fifty more, because I feel exactly like this:

I'm no poet and I know it
I don't use five dollar words
This might not sound like much compared to all the pretty things you've heard
But here's how I'd explain it
Since you brought it up
It won't sound like anybody else's version of love

Itís like just before dark
Jump in the car
Buy an ice cream and see how far we can drive before it melts kinda feeliní
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thereís a cow in the road and you swerve to the left
Fate skips a beat and it scares you to death and you laugh until you cry
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside

It might not be more suitable for greeting cards and such
But itís a true and honest feeling and if you feel it half as much
We could go through life together without a worry or a care
Knowing deep down in our hearts that weíve got something special here

Itís like just before dark
Jump in the car
Buy an ice cream and see how far we can drive before it melts kinda feeliní
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thereís a cow in the road and you swerve to the left
Fate skips a beat and it scares you to death and you laugh until you cry
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thatís how your love makes me feel

I have always heard you canít put love into words

Itís like just before dark
Jump in the car
Buy an ice cream and see how far we can drive before it melts kinda feeliní
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thereís a cow in the road and you swerve to the left
Fate skips a beat and it scares you to death and you laugh until you cry
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thatís how your love makes me feel inside
Thatís how I feel
Thatís how your love makes me feel
