So maybe I'll call you up,
Or would that ruin everything?
'Cause you're so perfect now
Unless there's something that I've been missing
And even if there was
Well, maybe we could just pretend
I could overlook those things
And disregard the consequence

But if I slip it in
Would you let me?
Can I take you in my arms and fly away?
Knowing just what I've wanted to say
But saying the opposite

Oh, oh
So I fumble around for a bit
I play with my toes
For the answers to the questions
But don't get me wrong
I'm just so overcome
By my lack of perfection

I've practiced this in my dreams
It's much harder than I had expected
So I'll throw this out
Despite all my doubts
So misguided
Yet so directed

If I slip it out
Would you let me?
Can I take you in my arms and fly away?
Knowing just what I've wanted to say
But saying the opposite
Oh yeah, ohh

Far beyond the flowers and trees
My rivers flow into your seas
My love, you bring me down to my knees
Oh, I've said it

And I don't have to turn around
I recognize you by the sound
You pick me up when I'm going down
I won't regret it

If I slip it in
Would you let me?
Can I take you in my arms and fly away?
Figured out what I've wanted to say:
I... love... you
