    "That's Why I Love You" lyrics - Van Halen

    Ooh-I've been dazed
    And confused
    My head's been lost in the clouds
    I get messed up
    And I spill up
    I think it's time for me to calm down
    Just like the weather
    Keeps gettin' better
    Red is gonna turn into blue-ooh-ooh
    I've stopped the rainin'
    And complainin'
    What more could a poor boy do-ooh?

    You know THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU, babe
    Ow-only you, baby
    Ow-you pull me through, babe
    You always do....

    If you see me
    Falling freely
    Whichever way the wind blows
    Bring me right back
    Put me on track
    Tell me where, tell me where I'm going!
    'Cause "Without You"
    You know I'll just turn into....
    Another one of those who flew over the cukoo

    Yeah THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU, babe
    Ow-only you, babe
    Ow-ya pull me through, babe
    You always do-hoo

    (Ooh yeah-yeah)
    Oh yeah
    Yeah-yeah there ain't nobody but you
    (Save me from)
    Yeah save me, save me, save me from myself!

    solo

    Yeah! THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU, babe--woo!
    Ow! Only you ba-by!
    Ow! You're pullin' me through, babe
    You always do-hoo

    solo

    Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
    Yeah it's gotta be you, babe
    Only you, babe
    Yeah it's gotta be you ba-by!
    Yeah only you, only you, only you
    Yeah THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU, babe
    Yeah THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU, babe
    Yeah only you, babe
    I love you, babe
    I love you, babe
    (Yeah THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU, babe)
    I love you, love you, love you, looooove you, babe
    (Yeah THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU, babe)
    You, you pull me through
    (Yeah THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU, babe)
    Ah-got-to got-to pull, pull, puuuuull me through, babe
    (Yeah THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU, babe)

    Neat song. I think if a little more 'umph' was added too it, it would've made VHIII.

    Yea those were the lyrics i was readin, its just maybe a lyric i would maybe add at the first one or the last one where he says "you always do".

    I can't remember, but did they post the lyrics for the tracks for the VH III follow-up? I remember on Van-halen.com around the time i joined this site they had a bunch of tracks and i distinctly remember Gary saying that some of the guitar sounds like "an alien on acid". But i think this was possibly gonna be the first track, if i remember correctly. Even tho it was recorded during the VH III sessions.

    A polished version of this track as a second single off of 3 would have done wonders for the record.

    So would having a truly objective producer, sound reproduction (what is with the damned amp buzz on several tracks? Even a nitwit like me avoids that, and all I have is a crappola 4-track cassette machine ), cover art (that "dirty sepia" tone added very little enticement) and general songwriting throughout.

    So yeah, shining this tune up a tad, or in fact actually finishing the damned thing (the lyrics are obviously not fleshed out, particularly the entire "That's Why I Love Ya" sequence was more of a "bridge" than a working chorus) would have been a grand idea.

    Hey folks, long time lingerer on the links but im a new poster

    me and my wife actually had this played at our wedding in scotland, we had two or three songs (her choice richard ashcrofts song for the lovers etc)during the service, then right at the end of the service just as everyone was leaving we had 'thats why i love you' played. It worked really well. it was excellent being able to sneak a wicked evh solo into the end of a church service

    Believe it or not, around the time of VHIII's release, there actually was a website devoted to the album, which included a handful of down-loadable songs. This tune was amongst those offered. That is where I initially heard the tune and received my first copy, using a dial-up connection.

    The name of the joint escapes me now, yet I do recall the color purple was used in it's make up. And I could almost swear to the fact that is was condoned by Warner Brothers.

    Anyone else remember this site?

    This is my favorite piece of music that Ed wrote while Cherone was there. I'm not a fan of the singing or lyrics on it but I'd love to see DLR rework it. I always thought that it had a bit of a Secrets feel to it.
