Love of mine when you're born I tell myself that you'll never die
And I throw my arms around the girl who finds you
‘Cause the world is rosier, through your eyes

I don't suppose you caught her name
Never mind I'll just name her after you, love of mine
I'll fashion her into a sweet long legged icon making all praise holier
Satisfied

Oh, but she gave us to each other
The only thing she's done for me that you could never do
For that she'll always be remembered
After she discovers I don't love her half as much as you

Love of mine when she goes why can't you stay
Here with me

Love of mine when you die I tell myself that you'll never live
Even as I curse the girl who says she'll find someone worthier of the gift
Someone who wants to share it with her
Far away from those who take you, to have and to hold
Now I'm stuck here trying to not remember
For all these pretty words it wasn't her but love that I adored
It's my love I adored

Love of mine when you're born I tell myself, that you'll never die
