"How Do I Know" as written by Michael Chaim Bloch, Kristina Lieberson, Jennifer Turner, Peter Hale and Luke Temple Breneman....
How do I know if I love you?
When I sure like your bread
The way that you tucker and straighten your bed
But how do I know if I love you?

How do I know if I know you?
When you come out clean from the shower
You squeak to the touch and you smell like a flower
How do I know if I know you?

Some men die in a fall
Not trusting their nose to show them the way
Some men die in a fall
The sun ain't no keeper in the pit of that day

How do I know if I love you?
When all these things come and go?
You can't stand them together in some neat little row
So how do I know, how do I know, how do I know?

How do I know if I know you?
When the light in your house isn't on?
I thought I heard movement but maybe I'm wrong
So how do I know if I know you?

How do I know if I love you?
When you've drawn the imaginary line
The way that you walk in two steps behind
How do I know if I love you?

(How do I know, how do I know, how do I know?)

    My InterpretationI think this song says it's the way his significant other smells that intimately connects him to her.

    It's not his sense of taste ("I sure like your bread [...] But how do I know if I love you?"), or even the smell of her soap ("When you come out clean from the shower..."), or the way she looks ("when the light in your house isn't on"), or talks ("I thought I heard movement but maybe I'm wrong"). Instead, he trusts "his nose to show [him] the way").
