Translation from "I love you to death" to "ti amo da morire" doesn't seem correct?

In English we say `"I love you to death"`. It's a kind of cute way of saying `"you mean something very profound to me"`, it's lighthearted and yet meaningful.I'm trying to say this to a girl I adore, yet it should be in a friendly kind of love way.Google translate suggests the following: > ti amo da morire**Firstly** The above translation has `amo` which is not what I'm really trying to convey (i.e., I am trying not to convey overly romantic sentiment).**Secondly** When using the more friendly way of using “love”, `"ti voglio bene da morire"`, it just doesn't seem like it works.Is there a better translation for this, or is this a case where there isn't a direct translation of this kind of meaning (colloquialism maybe).
