"Tell Him" as written by David Foster, Walter N Afanassieff and...
I'm scared, so afraid to show I care
Will he think me weak if I tremble when I speak?
Ooh, what if there's another one he's thinking of?
Maybe he's in love, I'd feel like a fool
Life can be so cruel, I don't know what to do

I've been there with my heart out in my hand
But what you must understand
You can't let the chance to love him pass you by

Tell him, tell him that the sun and moon rise in his eyes
Reach out to him
And whisper tender words so soft and sweet
I'll hold him close to feel his heart beat
Love will be the gift you give yourself

Touch him with the gentleness you feel inside, I feel it
Your love can't be denied, the truth will set you free
You'll have what's meant to be, all in time you'll see

Ooh, I love him, then show him
Of that much I can be sure, hold him close to you
I don't think I could endure if I let him walk away
When I have so much to say

Tell him, tell him that the sun and moon rise in his eyes
Reach out to him
And whisper tender words so soft and sweet
Hold him close to feel his heart beat
Love will be the gift you give yourself

Love is light that surely glows
In the hearts of those who know
It's a steady flame that grows

Feed the fire with all the passion you can show
Tonight love will assume its place
This memory time cannot erase
Your faith will lead love where it has to go

Tell him, tell him that the sun and moon rise in his eyes
Reach out to him
And whisper, whisper words so soft and sweet
Hold him close to feel his heart beat
Love will be the gift you give yourself

Ooh, never let him go

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and true. The part that Barbara plays is exactly what a friend did for me once. I'm ever so grateful.

    "You can't let the chance
    To love him pass you by "
    "Love will be the gift you give yourself"
    -- I know this now. :)

    General CommentI am in this situation right now, hopefully i can get up the nerves and talk to him about it somehow, unfortatnly he's as shy as i am about the matter, even though we have mutual friends trying to get us to go for it (i like him he likes me we are both chicken)

    General Commentthis song....... is AMAZiNG.
    barabara streisand & celine dion make SUCH a great duo.

    honestly when the lyrics hit
    and the harmonizing starts...
    oh goodness..
    every bone in my body starts to quiver.
    their voices are so powerful.


    the best lyric is

    "You can't let the chance
    To love him pass you by"


    to love, is the best thing that life can offer you.
