When You Tell Me That You Love Me
Diana Ross Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I want to call the stars
Down from the sky
I want to live a day
That never dies
I want to change the world
Only for you
All the impossible
I want to do

I want to hold you close
Under the rain
I want to kiss your smile
And feel the pain
I know what's beautiful
Looking at you
In a world of lies
You are the truth

And baby
Every time you touch me
I become a hero
I'll make you safe
No matter where you are
And give you
Everything you ask for
Nothing is above me
I'm shining like a candle in the dark
When you tell me that you love me

I want to make you see
Just what I was
Show you the loneliness
And what it does
You walked into my life
To stop my tears
Everything's easy now
I have you here

And baby
Every time you touch me
I become a hero
I'll make you safe
No matter where you are
And give you
Everything you ask for
Nothing is above me
I'm shining like a candle in the dark
When you tell me that you love me

In a world without you
I would always hunger
All I need is your love to make me stronger

And baby
Every time you touch me
I become a hero
I'll make you safe
No matter where you are
And give you
Everything you ask for
Nothing is above me
I'm shining like a candle in the dark
When you tell me that you love me





You love me
When you tell me that you love me

I wanna call the stars, down from the sky
I wanna live a day, that never dies
I wanna change the world, only for you
All the impossible, I wanna do
I wanna hold you close, under the rain
I wanna kiss your smile, and feel the pain
I know what's beautiful, looking at you
In a world of lies, you are the truth

And baby, everytime you touch me
I become a hero
I'll make you safe, no matter where you are
And bring you, everything you ask for
Nothing is above me
I'm shining like a candle in the dark
When you tell me that you love me

I wanna make you see, just what I was

Show you the loneliness, and what it does
You walked into my life, to stop my tears
Everything's easy now, I have you here
And baby, everytime you touch me
I become a hero
I'll make you safe, no matter where you are
And bring you, everything you ask for
Nothing is above me

I'm shining like a candle in the dark
When you tell me that you love me

In a world without you, I would always hunger
All I need is your love to make me stronger
And baby, everytime you touch me
I become a hero
I'll make you safe, no matter where you are

And bring you, everything you ask for
Nothing is above me
I'm shining like a candle in the dark
When you tell me that you love me
You love me
When you tell me that you love me

I wanna call the stars
Down from the sky
I wanna live a day
That never dies
I wanna change the world
Only for you
All the impossible

I wanna hold you close
Under the rain
I wanna kiss your smile
And feel the pain
I know what's beautiful
Looking at you
In a world of lies
You are the truth

And baby
Everyday you touch me
I become a hero
I'll make you safe
No matter where you are
And bring you
Everything you ask for
Nothing is above me
I'm shining like a candle in my dark
When you tell me that you love me

I wanna make you see
Just what I was
Show you the loneliness
And what it does
You walked into my life
To stop my tears
Everything's easy now
I have you here

And baby
Everytime you touch me
I become a hero
I'll make you safe
No matter where you are
And bring you
Everything you asked for
Nothing is above me

When you tell me that you love me

In a world without you
I'm always in hunger
All I need is your love to make me stronger

And baby
Everytime you touch me
I become a hero
I'll make you safe
No matter where you are
And bring you
Everything you ask for
Nothing is above me
I'm shining like a candle in the dark
When you tell me that you love me

You tell me
When you tell me that you love me
