"What I Wanted To Say" as written by Jason Reeves, Colbie Caillat, Kara Diaguardi and Mikal Blue....
I should've done something again
I did nothing watch us separate
What should I do now run and chase You down I can't hesitate

'Cause all I wanted to say was something real
All I want you to know is how I feel
All I wanted to give was my heart but I'm stuck here at the start

It's on the tip of my tongue but I'm still afraid
Sometimes the only things words do is get in the way
Sometimes the easiest things are the hardest to say
But I don't want to lose you, drive you away
I don't want to confuse you, I need you to say only wish you knew what I wanted to say only wish you knew what I wanted to say

My hands are shaking
I'm yours for the taking
Don't you hesitate
Please just do one thing
One small sign something
Let's jump off the edge

'Cause all I want you to say is something real
All I wanted to know is how you feel
All I wanted you to give is your heart
But we're stuck here at the start

It's on the tip of my tongue but I'm still afraid
Sometimes the only things words do is get in the way
Sometimes the easiest things are the hardest to say
But I don't want to lose you drive you away
I don't want to confuse you I need you to say
Only wish you knew what I wanted to say
Only wish you knew what I wanted to say

It's on the tip of my tongue but I'm still afraid
Sometimes the only things words do is get in the way
Sometimes the easiest things are the hardest to say
But I don't want to lose you

I don't wanna lose you
No I don't wanna lose you
No I don't wanna lose you
I should've done something
I should've done something
I should've done something
But I never wanted to
I should've done something
I should've done something
I should've done something
But I never wanted to
I don't wanna lose you
No I don't wanna lose you
I should've done something
I should've done something
I should've done something
But I never wanted to
I should've done something
I should've done something
I should've done something
But I never wanted to

    General CommentI feel like this song is about a girl who is best friends with a boy, but something happened and she is afraid she's losing him, like maybe he started dating someone else. She has feelings for him though but she never told him how she felt because she was scared of what he would say in return. And now she regrets not telling him the truth. I think she is still debating whether or not she should tell him she loves him.

    ...That's "If It Kills Me" by Jason Mraz

    This song reminded me a bit the song I posted above. Not so much in the music, but in the lyrical situation. You know, loving a friend, having so much to say but being afraid. We've all been there. Jason Mraz and Colbie are pretty similar musically, you should check it out!
