I cried and cried
the day my loved one died
I cried so much I couldn't tell
which of us was
dead or alive
that's how much I cried
the day my loved one died...

My loved one loved
like no one else
has ever loved
A love so pure
It could only be
from high above
A love so real
so good
so strong
A love so right
it erases all the wrong...

I know I died
the day my loved one died.
but like our love,
we both came back to life.

My loved one lives
in my heart and soul
and I feel more love
than I ever have before...
