"My Love" as written by and Linda Perry....
My love, we have seen it all
The endless confession, the rise and fall
As fragile as a child
Lately I'm sorry I can't hold a smile

But I stand tall to get by
No matter how hard I try to hide

[Chorus]
Did you know I take the time for you
Did you know that I would see you through
Did you know that I would play the part
I must've made it clear right from the start

My love, can you give me strength
Somehow I forgot how to ease my pain
I know I'm right where I belong
Something from nothing never proved me wrong

But I stand tall to get by
No matter how hard I try to hide

[Chorus]

I would shade my whole life with you
Would you do the same for me
And I would give all I am to you
Would you do the same for me

And I will stand tall to get by
No matter how hard I try to hide
Could you see I've been brave
Did you notice all my mistakes
There were times I could feel you read my mind

[Chorus]
Did you know I take the time for you
Did you know that I would see you through
Did you know that I would play the part
I know I made it clear right from the start

    Song MeaningI saw Celine live at Madison Square Garden recently. When she performed this song, she was having a difficult time holding back tears. It was an amazing thing to see her music move her as deeply as it does her fans.

    Her explanation for the song was that it took a long time to successfully record the song, because every time she did it, she would start crying, and she didn't know why. Here's her explaining it: youtube.com/…
