To love you I need a reason
And it's hard to believe that it doesn't exist;
One more so that this love can waste
Itself in this heart.
In spite of what they say...
That the years are wise.
Pain is still felt...
Because all the time I spent near you;
Left it's thread, woven in me.
And I learned to take from Time...
Those seconds that you let me see the sky to
It's profound depths. Next to you...
I think I gained a few pounds with so many
Sweet kisses given. You developed my...
Sense of smell and because of you
I learned to like cats.
You freed my feet from the pavement, so..
The both of us could fly away free for a moment.
But you forgot one last detail...because I have
Yet to learn how to live without your love.
I learned the significance of a rose.
You taught me how to tell tall tales...
So I could see you at hours that weren't so
Appropriate and to replace words with a gaze.
And it was because of you that I wrote...
More than one hundred songs.
I even forgave your mistakes and
I discovered a thousand ways to kiss.
And because of you, I know....
... what it is to love...
...what it is to love....
