"Did I Tell You" as written by and Nicholas Krill....
Let me read those things for which I am thankful
My father, my mother, my family essential
The fact that there's water on top of this planet
The opportunity for me to walk in it
[Unverified]
And the ability to tell you what I want to

Find me a gift that's through my closest acquaintance
That kid has so many new things
They know who this one is and I wish that they do
So I could stay with them

Did I tell you I don't think this will work out
That I love you but I'm wanting something else
Something close to me that I cannot forgive
Something far away that I?d like to end with

I?d like to end it with a music cliché
Saying [Unverified], it?s not you, it?s me
Then I could hang up and just put you away
In some music box that the Swiss army plays

Since it?s a holiday, I?ll leave you alone
Dial these numbers and then hang up the phone
A good excuse for me to waste my [Unverified]
Because you kept me here by [Unverified]

And I don't wish that you could be
So that it would stop me from asking
But lend me your ear, dear

Did I tell you I don't think this will work out
That I love you but I'm wanting something else
Something close to me that I cannot forgive
Something far away that I?d like to end with
End with, end with, end with

[Unverified] maybe, if we had met
Under different circumstances, I?d forget
Let me tell you that you got me to work [Unverified]

Did I tell you I don't think this will work out
That I love you but I'm wanting something else
Something close to me that I cannot forgive
Something far away that I?d like to end with
End with, end with

    Let me read [the statements] for which I am thankful
    My father my mother my family essential
    The fact that there’s water on top of this planet
    The opportunity for me to walk in it
    [Since it's the new year, thanks a lot for] ???
    And the ability to [take it if I want to]
    [Finally I give thanks to] my closest acquaintance
    That kid has so many new things
    They know who this one is
    And I wish that they do
    So I could stay
    With them

    Did I tell you I don’t think this will work out
    That I love you but I’m wanting something else
    Something close to me that I cannot forgive
    Something far away that I’d like to admit

    I’d like to end it with [the] music cliché
    Say in a phone call that it's not you it's me
    Then I could hang up and just put you away
    In some music box [with the sweet sound it plays]
    Since it’s a holiday I’ll leave you alone
    Dial [six] numbers and then hang up the phone
    A good excuse for me to ???
    Because you [can't be hurt by what you don't know]

    And I don’t wish
    That you could be
    So that it would stop
    Me from asking
    But lend me your ear dear

    Did I tell you I don’t think this will work out
    That I love you but I’m wanting something else
    Something close to me that I cannot forgive
    Something far away that I’d like to [admit]
    [Admit]

    Let me tell you that you [don't need to worry now]

    Did I tell you I don’t think this will work out
    That I love you but I’m wanting something else
    Something close to me that I cannot forgive
    Something far away that I’d like to [admit]
