I should have loved you from the start,

I should have loved you before all others.

I shouldn’t have let others change that, but I did.

You were too fat they said,

and they said it enough that it had to be true.

You were too ugly they said,

and they said it enough that it had to be true.

You are too nerdy they said,

and they said it enough that it had to be true.

You weren’t cool enough they said,

and they said it enough that it had to be true.

You were nobody special they said,

and they said it enough that it had to be true.

So I loved others, so many others, too many others.

I loved more and more others, hoping to fix me.

But I couldn’t fix me, there was nothing wrong.

So again, I say, I should have loved you from the start.

I hope that you believe me when I say, here and now,

from now, until the end of time,

I love you.
