1.
I used to wonder why it was my heart,
Beat like a flutt'ring bird when you drew near,
I did not know t'was witched by Love's sweet art,
And though it called for you I could not hear,

But ah! its whisp'rings are no longer vain,
The tale it strove to tell me now is plain;
And if you care to know What makes it throb and glow,
It's just because I love you so.

[Refrain]
Just because I love you so, sweetheart,
Just because I love you so,
You and I may part,
But still you'll own my heart,
Just because I love you

2.
I used to wonder why it was that you,
Seemed diff'rent from the rest that come and go,
And why your smiles and glances thrilled me through,
And why, when you were gone I missed you so;

But now I see, with eyes no longer blind,
Why you are always in my heart and mind,
And why you're more to me Than all this world could be,
It's just because I love you so.

[Refrain]
