“I Love You Because:” A Country Hit in the ’90s by Jim Reeves

Some people will love you because you choose yourself first. Love may sometimes be selfish. One example is choosing your self first. Loving is not all about happiness or romance, but also about sacrifice. We have built a relationship to grow and not to be imprisoned. It is fine to fall in love, but never forget to take your life and ambitions with you. Whoever you are, wherever you came from, or whatever your skin color may be, someone accepts you for who you are because real love works when we are real.

I Love You Because, Jim Reeves

True love never forces. We will only know that love is real when it waits because true love will never get tired. However, some relationships fail because of selfishness. They think that they already own their lover but we should not think of that way. Instead,  let him/her do whatever he/she wants because if destiny works, everything will always be on our favor.

“I Love You Because”

No matter what the world may say about me
I know your love will always see me through
I love you for the way you never doubt me
But most of all I love you ’cause you’re you
