When I Tell You (I Love You)

Story Behind The Song

How do we reach someone with the knowledge of the love of God when that person is in pain, but does not believe in God, or has had a bad experience with religion (don't we all at some time?) and doesn't want to hear the message that will help them? That was the driving force behind the lyrics in this song.

Song Description

This is how I decided to reach a friend who was evidently in much pain (emotional) but for whatever reason, they didn't want to hear how God is there for them. So the best way I found to get across that there is help for what they were going through, was to write this song and to just tell them that I loved them. That opened the door...

Lyrics

WHEN I TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
WHEN I TELL YOU HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME
WHEN I TELL YOU I NEED YOU
I MEAN IT FOR ALL ETERNITY

I CAN SEE YOU WEAR YOUR PAIN LIKE ARMOR
IF IT WERE ME, I MIGHT JUST DO THE SAME
BUT EVERY TRIAL AND EACH NEW TRIBULATION
AFTER A WHILE WILL START TO FADE AWAY

I UNDERSTAND YOU FEEL YOUR HEART IS BROKEN
AND YOU PLAN TO NEVER LOVE AGAIN
BUT HERE I AM WITH THIS SIMPLE DECLARATION
TAKE MY HAND AND I'LL HELP YOU LIVE AGAIN

WHEN I TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
WHEN I TELL YOU HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME
WHEN I TELL YOU I NEED YOU
I MEAN IT FOR ALL ETERNITY

EVERY MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE
IS SO SPECIAL IN GOD'S SIGHT
AND IN HIS KINGDOM THERE IS
NO ONE QUITE LIKE YOU
HE IS UP TO SOMETHING
THAT YOU MIGHT NOT SEE COMING
BUT I KNOW THAT THERE IS
NOTHING HE WON'T DO
BABY FOR YOU

WHEN I TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
WHEN I TELL YOU HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME
WHEN I TELL YOU I NEED YOU
WELL I MEAN IT FOR ALL ETERNITY

WHEN I TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
WHEN I TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
WHEN I TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
IT'S BECAUSE
HE FIRST LOVED ME
