I  LOVE  YOU  ALWAYS   ANYWAY  AND  INSTEAD


I love you always
anyway
and instead
Even when you don't match the perfection of the version
or the vision in my head

I'd take you most anyway you came
without you
my world couldn't be the same

If there were essential ingredients
you'd be the salt and sugar for me

I love you always
anyway
and instead
also in between

You may not match the perfection of the version
or the vision that I dream
I'll take you as you come
the person you bring to me

I'll love you always
anyway
and instead
maybe you really are
that version and the vision in my head.
