FATHER TAUGHT ME LESSONS
A TEACHER AND A FRIEND
SAID, “HERE’S THE FAMILY BUSINESS –
LOVE WITHOUT END.”
SO I’M HERE TO CARRY ON
SHARE THE LIGHT THAT HAS GUIDED ME
WITH A QUESTION OR TWO THAT I’M ASKING OF YOU
MAYBE YOU CAN HELP ME TO SEE…

CHORUS
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU MORE
AND HOW CAN I BE KINDER
HOW CAN I BE THERE FOR YOU WHEN YOU’RE NEEDING ME
THE ANSWER’S WORTH WAITING FOR
YOU NEVER HAVE TO FIND YOUR WAY ALONE
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU MORE

BELOVED TO BELOVED … WITH STRANGERS PASSING BY
BETWEEN PARENTS AND THEIR CHILDREN … EYE TO EYE
WE ARE HERE FOR JUST AWHILE
EVERY MOMENT IS OURS TO LIVE
WHEN WE ASK FROM THE HEART, THEN IT’S EASY TO START
AND THERE’S ONLY MORE TO GIVE

CHORUS
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU MORE
AND HOW CAN I BE KINDER
HOW CAN I BE THERE FOR YOU WHEN YOU’RE NEEDING ME
THE ANSWER’S WORTH WAITING FOR
YOU NEVER HAVE TO FIND YOUR WAY ALONE
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU MORE

BRIDGE
GOOD FOR ALL THE WORLD
GOOD FOR ALL THAT WILL EVER BE
GOOD FOR EVERY DREAM
GOOD FOR ALL OF ETERNITY

CHORUS
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU MORE
AND HOW CAN I BE KINDER
HOW CAN I BE THERE FOR YOU WHEN YOU’RE NEEDING ME
THE ANSWER’S WORTH WAITING FOR
YOU NEVER HAVE TO FIND YOUR WAY ALONE
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU MORE
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU MORE
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU MORE
