  1. The One Thing That He Knows

Lyrics

On their first Valentines Day
He didn't know what to say

Standing in the row of cards
Suddenly, the choice seemed hard.

Would their love, so fresh and new
Grow its root, or break in two?

He loved her smile, and tender touch
But was afraid to say too much.

And the one thing that he knows
the one thing that he knows
Is that love means more
love means more
Love means more than chocolates and a rose.

On their twelfth Valentines Day
He didn't know what to say

Standing in the row of cards
The choices always seemed so hard.

They fought about the kids,
What to spend, and how to live.

Sometimes, they both felt so alone.
Sometimes, they were each other's home.

But the one thing that he knows
the one thing that he knows.
Is that love means more
love means more
Love means more than chocolates and a rose.



Every year, always the same
We try to capture and to name
What we really can never really say
What we can just live, day-to-day.

On their last Valentines Day
He didn't know....

But he reaches for her face
That simple lifelong grace.

Distant memories still call
Like faded pictures on their wall

Of a love so deep and true
In this assisted-living room

And the one thing that he knows
the one thing that he knows.
Is that love means more
love means more
Love means more than chocolates and a rose.

So much more than chocolates and a rose.
