These three words Lyrics

Artist: Stevie Wonder
Album: Jungle Fever

When was the last time
That they heard you say
Mother or father, I love you
And when was the last time
That they heard you say
Daughter or son, I love you

Ones you say you cherish everyday
Can instantly be taken away
Then you'd say I know this can't be true
When you never took the time
To simply tell them "I love you"

When was the last time
That they heard you say
Sister or brother, I love you
And when was the last time
That they heard you say
Darling or best friend, I love you

The one for whom you'd give your very life
Could be taken in the twinkling of an eye
Through your tears you'd ask why did you go
Knowing you'd didn't always show
Just how much you loved them so

These three words
Sweet and simple
These three words
Short and kind
These three words
Always kindles
An aching heart to smile inside

I know a family
Who hasn't a cent to their name
And yet the joy and love they have between them
They always claim
And when one's called from life
The survived mourn the lost
And will never be the same
Yet they rejoice
In knowing they gave them their all

These three words
Sweet and simple
These three words
Short and kind
These three words
Always kindles

(repeat and fade)

I've tried to sing this song, and have cried, EACH AND EVERY TIME. Beautiful song, but so heartbreaking at the same time. What a genius!

@Ray i so agree!!! It is so inspirational and true and i can't help but cry just understanding the meaning of the song as well as the way Mr. Wonder sings it with heartfelt sincerity.

I looooove this song so much. It was just brought again to mind by my fiance. I got to hear the exact words to the song and it made me cry like it was sung to me. I agree @Ray he was an outright genius!

This song is the epitome of how we should treat our love ones. I cannot help but to cry knowing that I have not always behaved in a kind way toward mine n'how I regret it now. Mr. wonder is a true GENIUS.
