I just stopped by to tell you I love you

chorus

I just stopped by to tell you, I love you.
I just stopped by to tell you, I care.
oh the nights seem, so long and lonely
and the days, are so hard to bare

verse 1

It seems like forever, that youíve been gone
there was still so much, I wanted to say
the tears flowed down, like a river
and my heart just broke, as I walked away.
now Iím here today, to see you and tell you how I feel.
that my heart is breaking into and I want to hold you near.

chorus

I just stopped by to tell you, I love you.
I just stopped by to tell you, I care.
oh the nights seem, so long and lonely
and the days, are so hard to bare

verse 2

as i sat there talking to you today
there were some people that started to stare
I guess they never saw anyone talk to a stone
but I donít care what they think about me
Iím just tired of being alone
oh how I wish that you could just come homeí

chorus

I just stopped by to tell you, I love you.
I just stopped by to tell you, I care.
oh the nights seem, so long and lonely
and the days, are so hard to bare

verse 3

well the cemetery is now closing
and the caretaker said its time to go
I know your that your waiting in heaven
and someday weíll be together again
but it seems like forever my darling
I just donít know how I can go on

chorus

I just stopped by to tell you, I love you.
I just stopped by to tell you, I care.
oh the nights seem, so long and lonely
and the days, are so hard to bare
I just stopped by to tell you, I love you
and my darling, I always will
