Je t'aime. I love you.
Let me show you how much...
Somehow, a padlock now comes into play.
Lovers from around the world lock up their love on bridges in European cities such as Paris. They come to add their testimonies of love, engraving their initials on the padlocks that they then fasten to the railing. Then, with what I can only assume would be dramatic flair, they toss the keys into the Seine and kiss, declaring their undying love.
Some say the only way to break the seal of this love-lock is to find the key and unlock the padlock. Which is nearly impossible, since the keys lie at the bottom of the river.
