    Depends what you really want to say:
    I LOVE you -my version
    I love YOU -darobat's version
    Die a horrible death - Pravit's version

    But intonation does also play an effect

    For more info and opening a can of worms, it has been discussed here:

    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    no, the accent is on the ya, which makes the e sound more like an i.

    no, тебя sound pretty much like тибя at normal speed. Е ---> И in unstressed positions (generally).

    Ok, you guys have messed up the grammar. "I love you" in Russian is "ya tebya lyublyu", ok? You say it like this...

    ya TEBya lyu-blyu

    Got it?
