Hello, tell me you know
Yeah, you figured me out
Something gave it away
It would be such a beautiful moment
To see the look on your face
To know that I know that you know now

And baby that's a case of my wishful thinking
You know nothing

Well you and I
Why, we go carrying on for hours on end
We get along much better
Than you and your boyfriend

Well all I really wanna do is to love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can't say it after all we've been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me

How long, can I go on like this,
Wishing to kiss you,
Before I rightly explode?
Well this double life I lead isn't healthy for me
In fact it makes me nervous
If I get caught I could be risking it all

Cause baby there's a lot that I miss
In case I'm wrong

All I really wanna do is to love you
A kind much closer than friends use
I still can't say it after all we've been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me

If I should be so bold
I'd ask you to hold my heart in your hand
I'd tell you from the start how I've longed to be your man
But I never said I would
I guess I'm gonna miss my chance again

Well all I really wanna do is to love you
A kind much closer than friends use
I still can't say it after all we've been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
Oh, I think it might kill me

And all I really wanna do is to feel you
As the feeling inside keeps building
I'll find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me
It might kill me

    I love this song and its so true. The guy i like and have liked for a while if my best guy friend, and altho hes not taken i still dont know how in the world to tell him. I think he likes me but "there's a lot that i miss in case im wrong" and i tell him.

    This perfectly describes how i feel for someone i love... Yet we're just close friends and i can't seem to tell her for now. I just wanna show her how much i care for her and love her...

    there would come a time that you would be able to meet someone who could make you feel an unmeasureable heights of joy. that you thought would not come true -- but we need to see and weigh all emotions.. might be a feeling that come a long with a reason but not ment to be for a lifetime -- dahnz :)

    Dear Spider guy :),
    If she really cares for you, she'll come around. Guys who use girls NEVER end up satisfied in the end. They ether finally get a conscience about it, or they have people turn against them. Just tell her you wanna love her qa kind much closer than friends use :). i hope this helps. Just whatever you do, don't lose hope. Ever.
