by David William Gore
If I could say the words to you that I would like to say,
I would tell you that the world would stop if you ever went away
I would tell you that the moon and stars would leave the evening sky
And that if you were not around, my heart would surely die.
I always say the wrong things, like a knife they dig so deep
I see the sadness in your eyes and I know inside you weep
I cry alone when you?re not there, for the hurt I?ve put you through,
But when I try to make amends, the words just don?t seem true.
If I could give my life to you that would still not be enough
To take away the hurt I?ve done from words that are so rough
If I could say 'I love you' and hold you, you would see
I would tell you that I need you more than you need me.
If you said that you were leaving me I could not stand the pain
My heart it would stop beating, for it could not take the strain
These words I?m sending from my heart for I know that if I speak
The words that come from in me may be words that make you weep.
