Written by Diane Warren

Ooh ooh oh yeah
I kept it inside for the longest time and I can't keep keeping it
All this love that's inside of my heart
Maybe it's safer not to say that I care
Maybe this road won't lead me anywhere
But if I don't tell you now (if I don't tell you now)
I may never get the chance again (I may never get the chance again)
To tell you that I need you, tell you what I'm feeling
If I keep these feelings in
And if I don't say the words (if I don't say the words)
How will you hear what's inside my heart
How will you know then
If I don't tell you now

Ohhh
I'd do anything to be in your dreams and I can't stand standing by
With this dream that's inside my heart(heart)
Maybe I'm only gonna make a mistake
And there's a chance maybe my heart will break

But if I don't tell you now (if I don't tell you now)
I may never get the chance again (I may never get the chance again)
To tell you that I need you, tell you what I'm feeling
If I keep these feelings in
And if I don't say the words (if I don't say the words)
How will you hear what's inside my heart
How will you know then
If I don't tell you now

Ooooooh
How will you know you're inside my soul
Oh it's driving me crazy
Cause you don't see, you're the world to me
I'm so afraid to see
The way that I feel for you

If I don't tell you now (if I don't tell you now)
I may never get the chance again (I may never get the chance again)
To tell you that I need you, tell you what I'm feeling
If I keep these feelings in
And if I don't say the words (if I don't say the words)
How will you hear what's inside my heart
How will you know then
If I don't tell you now

Ohhhh ohhhh
If I don't tell you now
