When You Say You Love Me

Songwriters: Mark Hammond, Robin Scoffield
Performer: Josh Groban
Category: Contemporary

Josh Groban has had an interesting rise to fame, thanks to his vocal coach who introduced him to music producer David Foster, who then called him to rehearse The Prayer with Celine Dion for the 1998 Grammys when Andrea Bocelli was too sick to make the rehearsal. Grammy host Rosie O'Donnell heard the rehearsal and invited him to appear on her talk show, and the rest is, well, history.

This particular ballad comes on Josh's second album Closer (released in 2003), an album which he felt really communicated his truest musical style. It's a gorgeous choice for a wedding ceremony. If you are having it sung live, be sure the singer is very proficient - it has a wide vocal range and is a "big sing" for any singer.

Like the sound of silence calling,
I hear your voice and suddenly
I'm falling, lost in a dream.
Like the echoes of our souls are meeting,
You say those words and my heart stops beating.
I wonder what it means.
What could it be that comes over me?
At times I can't move.
At times I can hardly breathe.

When you say you love me
The world goes still, so still inside and
When you say you love me
For a moment, there's no one else alive

You're the one I've always thought of.
I don't know how, but I feel sheltered in your love.
You're where I belong.
And when you're with me if I close my eyes,
There are times I swear I feel like I can fly
For a moment in time.
Somewhere between the Heavens and Earth ,
And frozen in time, Oh when you say those words.


And this journey that we're on.
How far we've come and I celebrate every moment.
And when you say you love me,
That's all you have to say.
I'll always feel this way.


When you say you love me.
When you say you love me.
Do you know how I love you?
