"You Love I" is an unreleased song by Melanie Martinez. This song was supposed to be on Dollhouse EP, but it was scrapped because it didn't fit in with any of the other songs.

Melanie once tweeted all of the Dollhouse EP songs told by emojis. She had tweeted a tweet that said "you ❤ I". Once the song had been scrapped, she deleted the tweet.

When the lyrics are read backwards from bottom to top, it forms a complete, non-confusing story.

Theme

The story tells of Marilyn Monroe meeting a guy, and they start dating. They slowly become more and more attracted to each other and move in with each other. They decide to get married, but before they could she cheated on him.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The end, I move back in
Before you knew it, I cheated on him
Oh yeah, that's what happens when you don't try 
You know I always thought about him
Even when the other boys sneak in
But infidelity would never even cross my mind

[Verse 2]
Wonderful, so wonderful
But, boy, don't get too comfortable
'Cause what we have's untouchable, I, I, I
I stood deaf till I stood dead
Untied a knot in my wedding dress
He got down on one knee and he said

[Chorus]
You love I
You love I
You love I
Do I? Do I? Do I? Do I?

[Verse 3]
Oh oh, I move back out
He invited me into his fancy house
It's been so long we might as well try
Wonderful, so wonderful
You turned my heart into a puppet show
If you like me, please, let me know, I, I, I
One day, the very first date
He walked on over and he asked my name
He could be the one to say

[Chorus]
You love I
You love I
You love I
Do I? Do I? Do I? Do I?

[Refrain]
I love you
I love you
I love you
I do, I do, I do, I do

I do, I do, I do, I do
Do I? Do I?
You love I
I do, I do, I do, I do
Do I? Do I?
