H & Claire – If I Could Say The Words lyrics

I wish that you were in my arms tonight
And I could tell you the secret
I've been keeping inside
I know my words could steal your heart
If I could say them right
I can't pretend I'm not afraid
As I'm picturing us face to face

You can wish on a star
Close your eyes
And wherever you are
I'll be there for you
Until it comes true
But if your dreams fall a part
I'll still be the light in your darkest hour
I'd find a way
If I could say the words

I've been holding back so long
Rehearsing the lines
I played out this scene a dozen times
Now my heart is in your hands
Can't you understand
That I know exactly what to say
When it's you and I face to face

And how many nights
Can I dream that I've said
All these words
Then to wake to find
It was all in my head
That I know exactly what to say
When it's you and I face to face

Say the words
