It's those three words
Drifting through the air
Fluttering in my heart
Making life feel fair

First uttered in my ear
When I had just been born
Even though she'd hurt for hours
Affections blared strong as a horn

My best friend's like my brother
And we say it every day
To keep the insecurities
Of each other at bay

The one who holds my heart
Ever so gently in his hands
We can say it with a tone or glance
'Cause the other understands

For it's those three words
I hear from each of you
Which help me keep on breathing
Because I love you too
