What Do I See In Him

Written By: Sharon Schmidt

What do I see in him, how can I tell
maybe it's the way he holds me in his arms
that's why I fell

Why do I love him so, I wish I knew,
maybe it's the way he whispers
honey, I love you

Bridge: He has a way, of making the day
so cheery and always so new
When I am sad, when I am blue
He touches my nose,
and a smile comes through

What do I see in him, what could it be?
Maybe it's because
Of all the things,
He sees in me.
