You say you love me because I’m beautiful.
And while that does make my heart flutter,
there are plenty of girls who are more beautiful than me.
You say you love because I’m smart.
And while that does boost my ego,
I can’t always be as smart as you want me to be.
You say you love me because I’m sexy.
And while that does turn me on,
I don’t always feel like being sexy.
You say you love me because I’m funny.
And while that does make me smile,
I’m usually only funny when I’m not trying to be,
and while that amuses you, it infuriates me.
You say you love me because of my beliefs.
And while that does ease my brain,
my beliefs might not always remain the same.
I’m sorry, I don’t want to annoy or frustrate you.
I just want you to understand,
that I don’t want to know the reasons why you love me,
I just want you to love me.
Because if this ever ends for whatever reason,
these reasons you give me about why you love me,
are going to play on repeat in my mind,
and I don’t know when, if ever, they’ll end.
So just say you love me,
and leave it at that.
Because I don’t care about the why you love me,
I just care about the how.
