"Because I Do" as written by and Katie Sutherland....
I saw you the other day
And you were dreaming and that's okay
I saw you the other day
You were sleepin' on a boat but that's okay

Because I do like you
I do like you today

I saw you the other day
And you were tearful but that's okay
Saw you the other day
And you were screaming with laughter but that's okay

Coz I do like you
I do like you today

Because I do like you
I do like you

Pa pa para pa pa pa (x3)
Pa pa

I saw you the other day
And you were drinking whisky but that's okay
And I saw you the other day
And you were falling all over but that's okay

Coz I do like you
I do like you today

Because I do like you
I do like you

I close my eyes
So I'm not seeing
I shut my ears
So I'm not hearin'
I close my eyes
So I'm not seein'
You're out of reach
and now I'm bleeding (x2)

I close my eyes
I close 'em

I close my eyes
I close my eyes
I close them

Because I do like you
I do like you today

Because I do like you
I do like you

Pa pa para pa pa pa (x8)

    General CommentSuch a gorgeous song. I think we've all felt that way before.
    And yes... I'm willing to overlook the fact that it was on that ad for vodafone.

    General Commentits so mellow and chill and the meanings in the words, she likes someone from afar, and keeps seeing him here n there, at the end she is trying to not see or hear him because inside shes bleedin, which i think many people can relate to..

    beautiful song

    General CommentApparently this song is about still liking someone even if they're a drunken mess. You see them doing things that would usually put you off then they've had one too many but that's okay; you still like them no matter what.

    General Commentloving someone regardless.
    she sees them all the time and everytime their doing something that could be seenn as a put off, but she cant help loving them anyway, because she just blinds herself to their faults and loves them no matter what the consequence to her is emotionally.
    i also get the feeling that they dont see her like that, whether they dont know her well or they dont actually see her romatically so she has to shut herself off to stop her from getting more hurt than she already is.

    self explanitary i suppose. amazing song, gorgeous voicee love her to pieces.

    General CommentI'm not convinced that the lyric in the fourth line is "sleepin' on a boat."
