- once upon a time, i believed in love.
i always thought i'd believed in love,
i was sure i knew how it felt to fall a million years into it
i knew it was beautiful and i knew it was what i wanted
but i didn't know the fullness of the pain that brings it.
i thought i understood what it took to love someone,
but i didn't know the half of it.
it took everything i had and more.
it took breaking into a million pieces with
a smile on my face and
satisfaction in my heart at the thought that
i could shatter into pieces so small i couldn't be
repaired and i would still
be happy because of you.
once upon a time, i believed in love.
and then i loved you.
and now love is more than a smile on my face
it's the breath in my lungs
