Of Love Lost

I am uncertain of what rock I was under or why I missed it but I did.
Last year Keisha Cole released a song entitled "I Choose You". In the chorus she laments that ,

         If it aint you, It's not worth it
 No matter what I do, nothing's working
Baby I know love's not perfect
Even if he gives me the world it'll never be enough
Cause I choose you
I choose you
And if it ain't you
Then it's just not worth it

As I listened to the song I found myself thinking that I too have been there. 
Just because I can relate though does not make it OK. 
For one thing she sings of the new guy and how he can not possibly stack up to the old love that she longs for. For another she's making it a competition between herself and his new woman. Is that ever the correct route? Lastly she vows to continue to pursue him because "Even if he gives her the world it will never be enough". 

Have you ever found yourself in a similar situation with a lost love that you could not let go?

Tell me about it.
