     His kind could multiply

     Show honor to God
     And find favor in God's eye."

    When I'm with you, the sun shines my way
    Baby, our love reflects its rays of light on everyone in the world

    When I'm with you
    It's for real [It's for real]
    What I feel [What I feel]
    When I'm with you [You], Hey, hey, hey

    Uh-huh [Special touch, a warm embrace]
    A sweet and tender, your smile, whoa
    Body warm my heart, so pure
    Chills when I look, look in your eyes

    Favorite romantic poem or quote.
    Song "I knew I loved you" by Savage Garden
    Maybe it's intuition
    But some things you just don't question
    Like in your eyes
    I see my future in an instant
    And there it goes
    I think I've found my best friend
    I know that it might sound more than
    A little crazy but I believe


    I knew I loved you before I met you
    I think I dreamed you into life
    I knew I loved you before I met you
    I have been waiting all my life
