You're Sixteen Lyrics

by Johnny Burnette

I was never much at findin' words
To say what's on my mind
Even dare describe what you mean to me
Would take a whole lifetime
So if it don't come out like Shakespeare
Or perfect poetry
Well just remember this
You're the only reason for me
Who I am and what I'm for
And why I'm here, it ain't a mystery no more
You're the power behind my every dream
You're the only reason for me
Diamonds and gold treasures untold
Once beheld this heart of mine
Riches of the earth carry no worth
If the soul's left unsatisfied
Ain't the years that's made the difference
In the man this world now sees
It's you, it's you, just you
You're the only reason for me
Who I am and what I'm for
And why I'm here, it ain't a mystery no more
You're the power behind my every dream
You're the only reason for me
You're the only reason for me
