Jennifer Lopez’s new album, This Is Me…Now, and corresponding musical film are inspired by Ben Affleck in many ways; throughout both projects, J.Lo looks back on her love life, as well as the the mistakes and challenges she faced along the way to her happy ending with her now-husband.

On the track “Greatest Love Story Never Told,” Affleck’s imprint is especially significant. The title takes its name from a collection of letters the actor had written to Lopez through the years. The letters were private, but Lopez unearthed them with her collaborators while searching for inspiration for this album, according to Variety. Part of that process appears in Lopez’s upcoming documentary of the same name (which debuts on Prime Video on February 27).

In the footage, Affleck is at first surprised that the letters are made public. “I did really find the beauty and the poetry and the irony in the fact that it’s the greatest love story never told. If you’re making a record about it, that seems kind of like telling it,” he says, per Variety.

The resulting song is a clear tribute to Affleck, their decades-long love story, and their long-awaited reunion. She sings in the chorus: “20 years ago, feels like time has froze / We’re living in the greatest love story ever told / We never let it go and never told a soul / We could have been / The greatest love story never told.”

Do be warned, though, there are some risqué bedroom references in the beginning, with J.Lo saying, “Missing your body / Climbing on top of me” and… well, we’ll let her say it herself.

Listen to the song, and read the full lyrics, below.

Different roads, two lost souls
Never thought we’d find our way back
Could have lost what matters most
How could I live with that

Missing your body
Climbing on top of me
Slippin’ inside of me
Way that I ride it
Bodies aligning
Look at our timing
Forget about the world
When we’re alone
Only thing that ever felt
Felt like home

20 years ago, feels like time has froze
We’re living in the greatest love story ever told
We never let it go and never told a soul
We could have been
The greatest love story never told

You take a little right down the middle,
So close they can’t divide
It’s destiny, how we found each other twice in one lifetime
I tried life without you
Been thinking ‘bout you
You don’t know how long
And we got so much time left
This time, we won’t let go

20 years ago, feels like time has froze
We’re living in the greatest love story ever told
We never let it go and never told a soul
We could have been
the greatest love story never told

Then I wrote
The love we spoke
The story goes
Ever after every chapter
Now I see you’re part of me
I’ll always sing
Ever after another chapter

20 years ago, feels like time has froze
We’re living in the greatest love story ever told
We never let it go and never told a soul
We could have been
the greatest love story never told
20 years ago, feels like time has froze
We’re living in the greatest love story ever told
We never let it go and never told a soul
We could have been
the greatest love story never told

The greatest love
I’ve ever known
I’ve ever known
And now I know
I never got to be alone
The greatest love
I’ve ever known
I’ve ever known
And now I know
I never got to be alone
