"Things I'll Never Say" as written by Avril Ramona Lavigne, Lauren Christy, Scott Alspach and Graham Edwards....
I'm tugging at my hair
I'm pulling at my clothes
I'm trying to keep my cool
I know it shows
I'm staring at my feet
My cheeks are turning red
I'm searching for the words inside my head

Cause I'm feeling nervous
Trying to be so perfect
Cause I know you're worth it
You're worth it
Yeah

If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I want to blow you, away
Be with you every night
Am I squeezing you too tight
If I could say what I want to see
I want to see you go down
On one knee
Marry me today
Guess, I'm wishing my life away
With these things I'll never say

It don't do me any good
It's just a waste of time
What use is it to you
What's on my mind
If ain't coming out
We're not going anywhere
So why can't I just tell you that I care

Cause I'm feeling nervous
Trying to be so perfect
Cause I know you're worth it
You're worth it
Yeah

If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I want to blow you, away
Be with you every night
Am I squeezing you too tight
If I could say what I want to see
I want to see you go down
On one knee
Marry me today
Guess, I'm wishing my life away
With these things I'll never say

What's wrong with my tongue
These words keep slipping away
I stutter, I stumble
Like I've got nothing to say

Cause I'm feeling nervous
Trying to be so perfect
Cause I know you're worth it
You're worth it
Yeah

Guess I'm wishing my life away with these things I'll never say
If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I want to blow you, away
Be with you every night

Am I squeezing you too tight
If I could say what I want to see
I want to see you go down
On one knee

Marry me today
Guess I'm wishing my life away
With these things I'll never say
These things I'll never say

    General Commentthis song pretty much sums up how i feel about this guy. i've known him for practically forever and i still haven't gotten up the courage to let him know how i feel. don't you love it when you find songs like that? it's great, and you feel like they're written especially for you. man, if only i had enough balls to go tell him how i feel....anyways, i love this song with all my body, and my heart too

    General Commentheh. Allister, the words may not be so *profound* to the point that you have to pick-apart the piece and go into some in-depth interpretation of the song, but the words are written simply and straight forward. Avril accomplishes her goal in letting others know her wishes to tell a guy that she likes/is falling in love with him, but that something is holding her back or that she is too shy. This song is one people can relate to (including myself), and I think the quality in how a song is sang can make up for all of the difference in a song not being the most *original* in words, and this song is a good example of Avril's talent in making a simple song sound great.

    General Commenti love this song it shows that avril is really mature for a 17 yr old.

    BTW it makes me laugh when she says "I’d say I want to blow you..............away" hehe thats soo funny. dunno if its intentional but i'd like to think its her little joke.

    General Commenti love this song . it's like a crush song to me , or when your in love with someone . This really does describe how most girls , even guys , feel when they have an interest in someone . They get so nervous , they never build of the confidence to really tell them that they like them . So , then they start to stress out about it , how to tell the person , but not to sound like a dummy when they do .

    General CommentOne of the songs that helped me reach the decision to come out to my parents, friends, and the girl who is now the love of my life. Sitting on the shore of Portage Lake up in Houghton, MI, looking out at the beautiful fall stars, and listening to Avril on my iPod, doing a lot of introspection.

    General Commentthis song is really really sweet. and the line you can't get is "what use is it to you what's on my mind" i believe.
