I love You Songs

Human beings have a wonderful ability to reveal their feeling of love in many different ways. Often, between two people those ways are shown through looks, touches, gestures, etc. Sometimes those shared feelings are expressed in media such as writing, painting or sculpture. One amazing expression of love comes through music.

 

Music, unlike other mediums instills a passion. The feelings of not only the singer, but the music come together in a form of expression that the other methods lack. Best of all, it can be shared. Others gain an opportunity to feel those shared feelings. Sometimes so much so, that it brings tears to one's eyes. Select from the songs and let your beloved know how much you love him/her.
