I hope they love you too

I don't know if I've ever told you
The way I feel about you
I don't know if it's possible
To speak of what I feel
I don't know if another mind
can ever understand
The way it feels to love someone
The way it feels to hold your hand

I love you more than I love my existence
I love you more than anyone will see
And if you say that you really love them
I'll love them just for making you happy

I wonder if it feels this way for everyone
Is true love so strong all the time?
But I want to try to give to you this feeling
Love is so much more than just sublime
I see you every time I think of anything
I touch you every time I close my eyes
I hear you in all music and all laughter
I love you with each word in every line

I love you more than I love my existence
I love you more than anyone will see
And if you say that you really love them
I'll love them just for making you happy

Just say the word and I'll do what you wish for
Just speak to me and tell me what to do
And if you say you're happier without me
My love knows more than to argue with you
They may not be the perfect person for you
But you're the only perfect person here
I know that you will never ever love me
We both know that it's nobody's fault here.

I love you more than I love my existence
I love you more than anyone will see
And if you say that you really love them
I'll love them just for making you happy

But if you're ever wondering if they love you
If you're not sure that your own feelings are real
Remember my description of this feeling
And I hope that it's exactly how you feel
For love is deep and powerful and gorgeous
And love is unmistakable to see
And love is far too rare and far too precious
To give up any chance that you might see

They may not be the perfect person for you
But I hope that you love them just the same
And I know that your love is far too precious
To deny it to you just to spare me pain
I love you more than I love my existence
I love you more than anyone will see
And if you say that you really love them
I'll love them just for making you happy



You may never know what real love is like, you may not ever feel anything as deeply as I feel love for you, but I just want to share with you this beautiful feeling, this wonderful ache inside of you, this constant connection, this way of wrapping your every thought around the image of your love... I love you so much, I would do anything for you, I only want you to be happy, and I know you're happiest with someone else, so I'll love her loving you... but if it doesn't turn out for the best, if you're ever unsure of what to do, if your not sure that you love her or that she loves you, remember what I've told you real love feels like... if you're not sure that it's love, then it's not. If it's love, then you're luckier than you'll ever be again. Don't forget what love feels like.
