How Do I Know

  • How do I know if I love you?
    When I sure like your bread
    The way that you tucker and straighten your bed
    But how do I know if I love you?

    How do I know if I know you?
    When you come out clean from the shower
    You squeak to the touch and you smell like a flower
    How do I know if I know you?

    Some men die in a fall
    Not trusting their nose to show them the way
    Some men die in a fall
    The sun ain't no keeper in the pit of that day

    How do I know if I love you?
    When all these things come and go?
    You can't stand them together in some neat little row
    So how do I know, how do I know, how do I know?

    How do I know if I know you?
    When the light in your house isn't on?
    I thought I heard movement but maybe I'm wrong
    So how do I know if I know you?

    How do I know if I love you?
    When you've drawn the imaginary line
    The way that you walk in two steps behind
    How do I know if I love you?

    (How do I know, how do I know, how do I know?) Writer/s: Jennifer Turner, Kristina Lieberson, Luke Temple Breneman, Michael Chaim Bloch, Peter Hale
