Lyrics

I Love You

Written By: Geila Zilkha

I’m the kind of girl who needs to know that love exists
It keeps me movin’ on moving mountains
Makes me wanna keep believing
for this love I will never trade a thing
This love…is worth giving for

I’m the kind of man who believes there’re reasons people meet
It gives me a purpose, the reason why I live
And for to treasure the miracle of the two falling in love

One must keep the faith
Two must keep the faith
Keep the faith in these three simple phrase

?I love you,
I found my love, you`re my dream come true
The meaning of my life is to be with you
I can never love, never love someone like I love you

I love you

I’m the kind of man who try’s to keep his promises
And I’m the kind of girl who simply believes
No matter how the shape of love changes evry-thing we share
This love…. is worth living for.

One must keep the faith
Two must keep the faith
Keep the faith when I, We, Together say

I Love You
Our love will stay forever true
Thru rainy days the sun will be shinning thru
I can never love, .never love someone like I love you
?
??You’re so wonderful ?You’re a miracle
Everything i’ve waited for?Everything i’ll ever know
You’ve everything I realized how someone so very special can be so close
I can never love Never love someone like I love you
??
I Love you

Dive Into Your Love

Written By: Geila Zilkha

?Take me back to shore I’m drifting again
Dive into your love The pool of love
One more time together Don’t give it up
Dive into your love

Loneliness come and go but
I just wont let go
I can’t forget the way you ran your fingers thru my hair

Met somebody new
I feel like I’m in the wrong shoe
I wish that time would take me back to you again

All I wanna do is just believe in you
And dive into you love
All I need is you Can’t you see that it’s true
Let me dive into your love
?
Lovely boys come and go
Hello that’s how far it goes
I end up hoping they were you my dear, by my side

I tried to call you
But I’m afraid you’ll toss the move
I wish that time would take me back into your arms again

All I wanna do Just be with you
And dive into your love
My love is true I finally know it’s you
Let me dive into your love

?
All I wanna do is just believe in you
And dive into you love
My love is true I finally know it’s you
Let me dive into your love
? repeat
All I wanna do, is to dive into your love
