The above is correct, but there is more.


Explanation:
A more poetic way of saying it (not spoken often, usually in written form only) is using Kay.

It would read:
Kay ganda mo!
You are so beatiful! (How beutiful you are!)

You could also show more emphasis on 'beautiful' by saying it this way:

Ang ganda mo!
Or even more emphasis:
Ang ganda-ganda mo!

Both reading: Your (so) beautiful!
These are a lot more common than the above kay use, and used as often as Marcus' answer.

The translation of the latter sentence is the same:

Ikaw lang ang gusto ko.
You are the only one I want.

I hope this helps.

Napakaganda mo. Ikaw lang ang gusto ko, wala ng iba pa!


Explanation:
All the above suggestions are right but please take note that to give more emphasis on the phrase "only you" I suggest you add "wala ng iba pa" (no one else in Tagalog).

am i real
do the words i speak before you
Make you feel
That the love I have for you
Will see no ending?

Well, if you look into my eyes
Then you should know
That there is nothing here to doubt
Nothing to fear
And you can lay your questions down
'Cause if you'll hold me
We can fade into the night
And you'll know

The world could die
And everything may lie
Still you shouldn't cry
'Cause time may pass
But longer than it'll last
I'll be by your side

Take my hand
And gently close your eyes
So you could understand
That there's no greater love tonight
Than what I've for you
Well, if you feel the same way for me
Then let go

We can journey to a garden no one knows
Life is short, my darling
Tell me that you love me
So we can fade into the night
And you'll know

The world could die
And everything may lie
Still you shoudn't cry
'Cause time may pass
And everything won't last
But I'll be by your side
Forever by your side
So you won't cry
