I’m in love with the idea,

the idea of me falling in love with you,

the idea that once I do, you’ll never need to tolerate any other fool,

that I’m the one that you’ve been waiting for all your life.

I’m in love with the thought of you being my partner,

the idea of me waking up next to a soul so benevolent and pure,

the idea of being the part of a family that you’re more than capable to lead,

how I can turn to you every time I’m not sure.

I’m in love with the idea of us creating a new life like it’s our sequel,

that exemplifies all the best characters we possess and even better,

because we’ll create the story of the new life we’ll make,

a true example of wisdom we’ve already learned.

I’m in love with the idea of how we’ll learn as we live and make every mistake,

the idea that allows me to taste the best part of my life when I kiss your lips,

the idea that you’ll be by my side when I’m old and replacing my hips,

when I’m all wrinkled and can’t read a single word.

I’m in love with the idea that I’ll love you the same way I did on the first day,

as I will when we are old and grey,

Now see, I think I’m in love with the idea of you,

But not exactly you!
