I wanna tell you.
Hey, probably you already know—
I've told you ninety-nine times.
Maybe the hundredth will be special.
We've had our ups and our downs
Can't deny us that.
But we've been honest,
Yet through everything, we kept going.
We stumbled through some tangled pasts
Mixed up emotions
Twisted fairytales of happy endings.
But our story hasn't ended
I wouldn't want it to, either.
Hey, do you remember that time
When they told me to forget you?
Leave, then blot you out of my life?
Yeah, they wanted to tear us apart
Break us down
They tried to convince me you were worthless.
Some caring people they were.
But I'm thankful to you
You stood by next to me
Took all the hurt and worry
Took all the bitterness
And actually smiled.
You don't know how much I respect you.
I may not have known you for a very long time
But so much has happened
In such a small amount of time.
I remember you turned to me and asked me a simple question.
"How can you smile like that, without a care in the world?"
I only whispered,
"I think—maybe a little too much but, I think.
I think and create a world for only me and my thoughts."
Right then you just decided to waltz into my private 'world'.
But I suppose only you could do that.
Let me tell you something though.
I don't let just anyone in my life.
I don't trust many people. But,
You found a way through my insecurities
My artificial persona.
You made me act like I wanted to act, for so long.
I hadn't realized I'd bottled up all of my fears of being hurt.
You opened up that bottle with the first smile you gave me.
You made me realize who I used to be
Who I am
Who I will be
And I know what I'll do
I'll just keep telling you a couple more thousands of times.
I love you just a little more every single time I tell you that I do.
