Here I sit so tongue-tied,
looking for words that want to hide.
I’m trying to say how much I care,
and that I’m scared to let you share
my feelings that I have for you.
I just don’t know what to do.
I have to let you know somehow,
if I want this feeling out.
What would you say if you knew?
Would you say that we are through?
I’m so afraid you’ll say good-bye,
and that is when I will die.
Oh how do I put these fragile words
in a way that they will work?
I cannot find a way to say,
“I love you, Baby, in every way.”
