Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
I can't say I'd even notice it was absent
Cause I could live by the light in your eyes

I'll unfold before you
What I've strung together
The very first words
Of a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you
(Yeah)

There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me that you could not come true
Just love's illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something again

My whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you

We are not perfect
We'll learn from our mistakes
And as long as it takes
I will prove my love to you

I am not scared of the elements
I am underprepared, but I am willing
And even better
I get to be the other half of you

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you

    I never thought I will ever hear another beautiful song like this one written in my lifetime. Sara Bareilles is a brilliant songwriter and a prodigy at crafting words.

    This made me cry too. My boyfriend broke up with me a few weeks ago, and this song just reminded me of how much I loved him. I cannot compare anyone to Sara Bareilles. I Downloaded all of her songs in the new and previous album. I love you more than my ex now. Keep it up! #1 Fan here. Hahaha
