i love you

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you. I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you

I only just met you before
But I can't understand, you don't want me more
You maybe think that I'm too smart and weird
But that should only make you want to hear that

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you

You make me feel really mature
But that should only make you feel secure
Although we've only known each other for a bit
Already I can't sleep at night and I feel like shit, that's really odd
