I've never been good
at saying 'I love you'
the words sound so hollow
even though it's the truth

I always thought you knew
and I guess you always did
still I felt like I was doing wrong
in not telling you

Still one day is slipped out
it couldn't be helped
you were so sad and I
couldn't bear to see you cry

You were shocked I was afraid;
afraid I'd made a mistake
and you would leave me
because I cared

But instead you turned
and said you loved me back
