Get so caught up everyday
Tryna keep it all togther
While the time it slips away
You see I know nothing last forever

Imagine there was no tomorrow
Imagine that I couldn't see your face
There would be no limit to my sorrow
So all I can say

I wanna tell you somthing, give you something
Show you in so many ways
Cause it would all mean nothing if I don't say something before it all goes away
Don't wanna wait to bring you flowers, waste another hour let alone another day
I'm gonna tell you something, show you something, won't wait til its too late

[2x] (I can't wait I can't wait I won't wait I don't wanna wait)

Just a simple conversation
Just a moment is all it takes
I wanna be there just to listen
(I wana be here)
And I don't wanna hesitate

Imagine there was no tomorrow
Imagine that I couldn't see your face
There would be no limit to my sorrow
Cause there's nothing that could fill that space
I don't wanna put it off for too long
I didn't say all that I had to say
I wanna take my time and right the wrong before we get to that place

I wanna tell you somthing, give you something
Show you in so many ways
Cause it would all mean nothing if I don't say something before it all goes away
Don't wanna wait to bring you flowers, waste another hour let alone another day
I'm gonna tell you something, show you something, won't wait til its too late

Just lean on my shoulder,
Its not over til its over
Don't worry bout it cause
I'm gonna make sure Ima get stronger
I don't wanna wait til the storm and something wrong and now your gone and I can't find ya

I wanna tell you somthing, give you something
Show you in so many ways
Cause it would all mean nothing if I don't say something before it all goes away
Don't wanna wait to bring you flowers, waste another hour let alone another day
I'm gonna tell you something, show you something, won't wait til its too late

I wanna tell you somthing, give you something
Show you in so many ways
Cause it would all mean nothing if I don't say something before it all goes away
Don't wanna wait to bring you flowers, waste another hour let alone another day
I'm gonna tell you something, show you something, won't wait til its too late

I wanna tell you somthing, give you something
Show you in so many ways
Cause it would all mean nothing if I don't say something before it all goes away
Don't wanna wait to bring you flowers, waste another hour let alone another day
I'm gonna tell you something, show you something, won't wait til its too late

(I can't wait, i can't wait, i won't wait, i don't wanna wait)
