"Baby Can I Hold You Tonight" as written by and Tracy L Chapman....
"I'm sorry,"
It's all that you can't say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like "sorry" (like "sorry"..like "sorry"..)

"Forgive me,"
is all that you can't say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like "forgive me" ("forgive me"..."forgive me"..)
Forgive me..

But you can say, baby
Baby can I hold you tonight?
Baby, if I told you the right words
oooh, at the right time
You'll be mine

I love you
is all that you can't say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily (words don't come easily..)
Like "I love you", I love you..

But you can say, baby
Baby can I hold you tonight?
Baby, if I told you the right words
oooh, at the right time
You'll be mine

(Baby can I hold you...)
But you can say, baby
Baby can I hold you tonight?
Baby, if I told you the right words
oooh, at the right time
You'll be mine

(Baby, if I hold you..)
(Baby, can I hold you..) You'll be mine..
(Baby if I told you..)
(Baby, can I hold you..)
You'll be mine..
(Baby if I told you..)
Baby, can I hold you

    General CommentWell maybe if all these people know that this is only a cover for Tracy Chapman's song, they might be able to relate!

    General CommentI can't believe all the people I know here in the US have no clue who Boyzone is. lol...anywayz, this song I can fairly relate to. well, at least this one line: "Baby, if I told you the right words oooh, at the right time You'll be mine". Timing is everything in this world, even if there IS a different Time we should take into consideration-but anyhoo..."I love you is all that you can't say"
