The best version in the whole universe!

We are 12 billion light-years from
the edge,
That's a guess,
No one can ever say it's true,
But I know that I will always be
with you. - Katie Melua

but before we be accused of promoting bad science, these are the corrected lines (from Simon Singh, BBC Science Correspondent)

We are 13.7 billion light-years from
the edge of the observable universe,
That's a good estimate with
well-defined error bars,
Scientists say it's true, but
acknowledge that it may be refined,
And with the available information, I predict that I will always be
with you
