YOU DON'T HAVE TO ASK

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  you wonder are you welcome
                 in the night to wake me.
                 and you say my name softly
                 like a question you were saving.
                 how can I answer maybe?
                 how could I say perhaps?
                 will I ever say I'm sleepy?

        CHORUS:  you don't have to ask.
                 you don't have to ask.

            II.  sometimes I make you worry,
                 will I leave you someday
                 because sometimes I need you
                 when you need some space?
                 but when I look toward you
                 like a flower to the sun,
                 could I ever turn and run?

                 (repeat chorus)

        BRIDGE:  if I can give you something,
                 anything at all,
                 including days of freedom
                 when you need to be alone...

                 (repeat chorus)

           III.  will one outlive the other?
                 will fate tear us apart?
                 are we together this day,
                 tomorrow lonely hearts?
                 and will the outside world destroy us
                 with looks and verbal hail?
                 and will our love prevail?

                 (repeat chorus)
