That’s How You Know (that He Loves You)

Watching Disney’s Enchanted with Michelle on television last night, she said with delight, “I can’t believe that daddy and mommy are watching “Enchanted” with me”.

Oh yeah, we’ve watched it several times already with her already, but she only braved herself to watch the scene when the evil queen manifested into the dragon only last night.

But what caught my attention was the song “That’s How You Know” ( I could see hubby was equally enthralled with the scene). Ah yes! The first few weeks and months when love starts to bloom. When you catch yourself thinking about that “one true love” almost every other minute of your time.

How does she know that you really, really, truely love her?
How does she know that you love her?
How do you show her you love her?
How does she know that you really, really, truely love her?

It’s not enough to take the one you love for granted You must remind her, or she’ll be inclined to say… “How do I know he loves me?”

I’m pretty sure we women want these little reminders of what makes her special. As much as how the guys can’t read a woman’s mind, likewise for us women.

Man:
You’ve got to show her you need her
Don’t treat her like a mind reader
Each day do something to need her
To believe you love her

Married or single, we need that extra attention, once in a while. It just keeps the daily grind of life a little bit sweeter and bearable.

Well does he leave a little note to tell you you are on his mind?
Send you yellow flowers when the sky is grey? Heyy!
He’ll find a new way to show you, a little bit everyday
That’s how you know, that’s how you know!
He’s your love…

No, I’m not hinting this to my hubby (though he needs that reminder once in a while), just a little “Enchanted” watching the “Happily Ever After” movie. What matters most of the time is, my hubby trusts me, gives me the freedom to go out with my girlfriends without question, makes me an equal partner in making decisions, doesn’t blow his top when I come back with bag-loads of shopping (though I can sometimes almost see his heart squirming!). An understanding, not arguable type, that stable, not over-bearing type. That laid-back, non tongue-lashing, shrug-it-off-because-it’s-not-the-end-of-the-world-type.

Ah! Romance is still required in our relationship, and like most women, I can never outgrow this phase, but that foundation of trust is a must.

Here’s to a beautiful love life! You can watch the video of the song on my Vodpod at the side panel of my blog.

That’s How You Know from Disney’s Enchanted by Amy Adams

Giselle:
How does she know you love her?
How does she know she’s yours?

Man:
How does she know that you love her?

Giselle:
How do you show her you love her?

Both:
How does she know that you really, really, truely love her?
How does she know that you love her?
How do you show her you love her?
How does she know that you really, really, truely love her?

Giselle:
It’s not enough to take the one you love for granted
You must remind her, or she’ll be inclined to say…
“How do I know he loves me?”
(How does she know that you love her?
How do you show her you love her?)
“How do I know he’s mine?”
(How does she know that you really, really, truely love her?)

Well does he leave a little note to tell you you are on his mind?
Send you yellow flowers when the sky is grey? Heyy!
He’ll find a new way to show you, a little bit everyday
That’s how you know, that’s how you know!
He’s your love…

Man:
You’ve got to show her you need her
Don’t treat her like a mind reader
Each day do something to need her
To believe you love her

Giselle:
Everybody wants to live happily ever after
Everybody wants to know their true love is true…
How do you know he loves you?
(How does she know that you love her?
How do you show her you need her?)
How do you know he’s yours?
(How does she know that you really, really, truely-)

Well does he take you out dancin’ just so he can hold you close?
Dedicate a song with words in
Just for you? Ohhh!

All:
He’ll find his own way to tell you
With the little things he’ll do
That’s how you know
That’s how you know!

Giselle:
He’s your love
He’s your love…

That’s how you know
(la la la la la la la la)
He loves you
(la la la la la la la la)
That’s how you know
(la la la la la la la la)
It’s true
(la la la la la)

Because he’ll wear your favorite color
Just so he can match your eyes
Rent a private picnic
By the fires glow-oohh!

All:
His heart will be yours forever
Something everyday will show
That’s how you know
(That’s how you know)
That’s how you know
(That’s how you know)
That’s how you know
(That’s how you know)
That’s how you know
(That’s how you know)
That’s how you know
(That’s how you know)
That’s how you know
(That’s how you know)
That’s how you know!

Giselle:
He’s your love…

Man:
That’s how she knows that you love her
That’s how you show her you love her

Giselle:
That’s how you know…
That’s how you know…
He’s your love…
