Oh, oh, whoa, whoa

I've kept it inside for the longest time
And I can't keep keeping in
All this love that's inside 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 felling
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 in my heart
How will you know that
If I don't tell you now, oh

I'd give anything to be in your dreams
And I can't stand standing by
With this dream that's inside my heart (my 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 felling
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 that
If I don't tell you now

(Ooh) how will you know you're inside my soul
Oh, it's driving me crazy
'cause you don't see
(You don't see)
You're that world to me
I'm so afraid to say the way that I feel, 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 felling
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 that
If I don't tell you now, oh, oh
If I don't tell you now
