There a hole the size of a cruel word In a wounded heart somewhere that's learning to hide the pain
There's a thorn stuck in the conscience of Someone who spoke a word in anger
And they can't wash away the stain, sorry's such a hard word to say

CHORUS

But while it's still called today, won't somebody make it right
Before the day slips into night and the moments waste away
While it is still called today, we've got to say the words
That are longing to be heard 'cause tomorrow may be too late
Go on and say what you need to say while it is still called today

There's a girl who's waiting day after day To hear her daddy say "I love you,"
Now the days have turned to years There's a wall that silence has turned to stone
Between a man and woman, she's holding back the tears
And he's holding on to his fears

(Chorus)

BRIDGE
'Cause there's a time when the sun goes down And the flowers are laid on the grave
Will the tears that fall to the ground Be the tears of regret for the words someone didn't say
