Chorus

I love you. Don’t you know I love you? I love you, My love from the depths of my heart.

You love him, Don’t he know you love him? You love him, your love from the depths of your heart.

Verse 1

You love him, Don’t he know you love him? You love him, your love from the depths of your heart.

I love you, you know I love you?

You love me I love you too. You smiled for me and I retaliated.

Since you love me then my dear come and carry me.

Since you love me then and back me.2×

You love him, Don’t he know you love him? You love him, your love from the depths of your heart.

Oh my dear,  oh my love.

Oh, my true love my better half.

The day you will tell me you don’t love me will confuse me.

I’m down in the ocean and flown by your love.

If you say you don’t me, the world will laugh at me. 2×

You love him, Don’t he know you love him? You love him, your love from the depths of your heart.

I want to let you know that I’m in love with you.

So also I want you to know that your love has confused me.

You love me and I love you too.

Love is sympathetic since you love me I love you too.

Love me the way I love you since you know love is sympathetic.

Love me the way I love you.

Chorus

You love him, Don’t he know you love him? You love him, your love from the depths of your heart.

Verse 2

Oh so is true that love is sympathetic.

Anyone that knows love knows that love is sympathetic.

The day you meet someone who loves you honestly then love is sweet.

The day you love someone that doesn’t love you, you will be heartbroken.

He/she will leave you with heart pains.

He/she won’t care about you.

Chorus

You love him, Don’t he know you love him? You love him, your love from the depths of your heart.

Verse 3

May God protect us from unreal love.

He/she doesn’t love you but they will pretend as if they do.

Men of nowadays that’s what they are good at.2×

Chorus

You love him, Don’t he know you love him? You love him, your love from the depths of your heart.

I will spray perfume and smell nice.

I’ll catwalk.

I’m here waiting for you because you are my love.

Come let me see you.

Weldone my Alhaji.

My better half.

Chorus

You love him, Don’t he know you love him? You love him, your love from the depths of your heart. 2x

Hold onto my love.

Let me hold onto yours.2×

I don’t sleep because I think of you day and night.2×

Chorus

You love him, Don’t he know you love him? You love him, your love from the depths of your heart.

Verse 6

Oh my God, I’m being hit by a love stroke.

What will I do I’m so in love.

If I did not see my love, I’ll cry and be teary.

I’ll sit and be worried nothing impresses me.

Until I see the smile of my love. 2×

Chorus

Verse 7

You love him, Don’t he know you love him? You love him, your love from the depths of your heart.

Come and hold my hand.

I’ll follow you wherever you go to…

Wherever you are once you call I’ll answer.

Even in the dark when you talk I’ll recognize you.

I’m waiting for you, you are my love.

Come let me see you.

Weldone my Alhaji. 2×
