    baby,

    i drove up the coast
    in the middle of the night
    to lay my body
    upon your grave
    pressing my heart
    against your cold tombstone
    missing you and your brand of love so much

    why did you leave me?
    i don't know how to survive
    this love game without you

    always tender words from you
    always an honesty of heart
    never would you let me hurt
    simply because i wanted to hear your voice

    if i called and you didn't answer
    you would call back as soon as you could
    saying, "hi baby. i love you. what's up?"

    never did you tell me you love me
    and then call me out my name
    only gentleness did i know from you

    and when my world would spin out of control
    you would hold me close and say, "girl, i got you"

    oh how i still long for you and your magical touch
    the way you look deep into my eyes when we made love
    the way you would smile when i walked into a room
    how close you would hold me when we danced

    one and true love of my life
    thank you for teaching me true love
    and for never treating my heart
    as if it was some type of ball
    to be bounced back and forth between men
    who have no regard for my feelings
    only wanting to see who will win

    so here i lay, the sun shining bright
    my heart pressed against the marble
    my tears sinking into the ground
    thinking, if i could i would lie here
    forever with you

    "Je t'aime de tout mon cœur, de toutes mes pensées et de toute mon âme, et je te chérirai j'usqu'à la fin de mes jours."
