"If I Don't Tell You Now" as written by and Diane Warren....
I've kept it inside
For the longest time
And I can't keep keepin' in
All this love that's inside my heart
Maybe it's safer not to say that I care
Maybe this road won't lead me anywhere

[Chorus]
But if I don't tell you now
I may never get the chance again
To tell you that I need you
Tell you what I'm feeling
If I keep these feelings in
And if I don't say the words
How will you know what's inside my heart
How will you know then?
If I don't tell you now

I'd give anything to be in you dreams
And I can't stand standin' by
With this dream that's inside my heart
Maybe I'm only gonna make a mistake
And there's a chance maybe my heart will break

[Chorus]

How will you know you're inside my show
Oh it's driving me crazy
Cause you don't see
You're the world to me
I'm so afraid to say the way that I feel

[Chorus]

If I don't tell you know

    General CommentThis is a great song to make you get the courage to tell someone how you feel. Time will pass you by, believe me. If you truly care about someone, you should tell them. it may be easier to not say a word and keep what you have with this person, but it will kill you inside because all you want is to tell the person how much you care about them and you love them.

    General Commentto me this song talks about a guy and a girl who are best friends...and one of them has fallen SO IN LOVE w/ the other one and wants nothing more then to confess there love...but if they do, there's the risk that they could lose they're friendship...and it would be a shame 4 that to happen..but there friendship could be so much more....but the perfect moment arrived and if he doesnt tell her now that he love's her, he'll never get the chance to

    General CommentI love this song, I first heard it in the movie "Boys and Girls" then I googled it and tried to find it on line, finally I came across a good version of it. I couldn't find the exact one from t he film tho. Anyways, this song I listened to again one day and it made me tell the girl that I love that I love her again. Even tho I was so afraid that my heart could break again.

    General Commenti heard of this song in that movie too.i loved it !!

    it's so painful when you love someone but you can't tell the person how you feel because you're afraid it might ruin the relationship.
