I volunteer to drive you home
To spend some time with you alone
But the words don't come, that I wanna say
And the precious time just slips away
Cause you don't know, you don't know that it's me
Who really loves you so desp'rately
If I could only make you hear,
I'd volunteer

I volunteer to stop somewhere
And talk about your love affairs
We'll laugh together like best friends
But I hate to see these moments end

Cause you still don't know, you don't know that it's me
Who really loves you so desp'rately
If I could only make you hear,
I'd volunteer

Well I volunteer the love I kept inside so long
I search in your eyes for the moment, but it never seems to come

We talk all night and forget the time
But I never say what's on my mind
And when you're gone all that I wish
Is I'd said it all with just a kiss

Cause you still don't know, you don't know that it's me
Who really loves you so desp'rately
If I could only make you hear,
I'd volunteer
If I could only make you hear,
I'd volunteer
