Maybe I'll Say It

I know how I feel
But the words haven’t caught up
I’ve thought of the word love
So many times
Maybe one day you’ll hear me say it

What can I do
To make you feel what I cannot say?
You’ve seen my eyes
So many times
Maybe one day you’ll see them blink

If I could only let you know
Maybe I’d change your life
Instead I love you on my own
On my own
While your heart lives alone

I know how I feel
But tomorrow is always the answer
I think you’re better without me
So many times
Maybe one day I’ll stop saying it

I know you need love
I see how you smile at other couples
You want what they have
So many times
Maybe one day I’ll talk instead of think

If I could only let you know
Maybe I’d change your life
Instead I love you on my own
On my own
While your heart lives alone

We could run away
Or dive so deep
So deep
Anything instead of being apart
Anything as long as we start

If I could only let you know
Maybe I’d change your life
Instead I love you on my own
On my own
While your heart lives alone

This sounds like a song. I could hear a rhythm while I read it. Wonderful words....if I could only learn to say it instead of loving them on my own...on my own.
