Lyrics

Nights in white satin, never quite reaching the end,
I’ve got letters here I've written, I never meant to send.
Beauty I'd always missed with these old eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can't say no more.

'But I love you, I love you, I love you.
I love you

Gazing at people, some of them walking their hand in hand,
exactly what I'm going through, I don’t think they can understand.
Some of them try to tell me, thoughts they can’t even defend,
whatever it is you want to be, you gonna be in the end.

But I just want to say you I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I've always missed, with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

Lord, I love you, I love you,
I love you, I love you. x3
