  • Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
    Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
    I can't say I'd even notice it was absent
    'Cause I could live by the light in your eyes
    I'll unfold before you
    Would have strung together
    The very first words of a lifelong love letter

    Tell the world that we finally got it all right
    I choose
    You
    I will become yours and you will become mine
    I choose
    You
    I choose
    You, yeah

    There was a time when I would have believed them
    If they told me you could not come true
    Just love's illusion
    But then you found me
    And everything changed
    And I believe in something again

    My whole heart
    Will be yours forever
    This is a beautiful start
    To a lifelong love letter

    Tell the world that we finally got it all right
    I choose
    You
    I will become yours and you will become mine
    I choose
    You
    I choose
    You

    We are not perfect we'll learn from our mistakes
    And as long as it takes I will prove my love to you
    I am not scared of the elements I am underprepared
    But I am willing
    And even better
    I get to be the other half of you

    Tell the world that we finally got it all right
    I choose
    You, yeah
    I will become yours and you will become mine
    I choose
    You
    I choose
    You

    I choose
    You Writer/s: Jason Blynn, Pete Harper, Sara Bareilles
