"Gotta Tell You" as written by Samantha Mumba, Anders Sven Bagge and Arnthor Birgisson....
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Your love for me came as a waterfall
Flowin' inside me like never before
Your love for me, somethin' I didn't see
But baby, I know better now

When you walk in the room that very night
A special feelin' just burst inside
It was only you, nobody else
But baby, I know better now

Don't want to love you if you don't love me
Don't want to need you when you won't need me too
Don't want to tell you this now, but it wouldn't be
Right
If I didn't tell you this tonight

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And now you're back inside my house again
I'm tryin' deeper to explain
'Cause baby, I want to get it on
And baby, you're the one for me

But now that I have got you all alone
After all this talkin' on the phone
I should be strong, there's nothing wrong
I'll tell you this is where you belong, where you
Belong

Don't want to love you if you don't love me
Don't want to need you when you won't need me too
Don't want to tell you this now, but it wouldn't be
Right
If I didn't tell you this tonight

Don't want to love you if you don't love me
Don't want to need you when you won't need me too
Don't want to tell you this now, but it wouldn't be
Right
If I didn't tell you this tonight

It was just something in your eyes
That made me realize
But now I hear voices deep inside
Tellin' me, tellin' me
It's you

Don't want to love you if you don't love me
Don't want to need you when you won't need me too
Don't want to tell you this now, but it wouldn't be
Right
If I didn't tell you this tonight

Don't want to love you if you don't love me
Don't want to need you when you won't need me too
Don't want to tell you this now, but it wouldn't be
Right
If I didn't tell you this tonight

    General CommentYeah, it is bittersweet to me too. I was so head over heels for this guy who liked me too but not in the same way. And I've always been proud so I wouldn't risk that much cause I was so aware that he was not for me...Love is too cruel sometimes and certainly not fair. Still this song was played during the best time of my life, a summer I won't forget when we were so close friends and I kind of knew he would break my heart, but I loved him and I still hold very strong feelings towards him after five and a half years.

    General CommentNot a great song, but fun and poppy.

    General CommentPretty straightforward; narrator's all hot and bothered, but is being prudent enough to hold back in case her feelings aren't returned.

    Great beat, very nice bridge. Good one-hit-wonder, (as it really is, considering she doubled as a sometimes-actress.)

    General CommentSimple song about a girl who wants to express her feelings despite having obvious reservations and doubts in doing so. However, in saying that, she feels that she should, because otherwise she would regret it, if he did in fact feel the same.
