When I Tell You I Love You

I don't know how to tell you I love you
I see you every day at work
and I know you want to meet me even though you've never seen my face.
And all I've got to do is walk over
and say a little word or two...
well it sounds easy but talking is hard,
when I'm talking to a girl like you.

I want to speak,
shout,
let my soul pour out
but when I'm near you,
I just can't find the words.

I want to scream,
sing,
tell you that I love you like anything
but I just can't say a word.
Even my silence can't be heard,
because I know it's going to sound absurd
when I tell you I love you.

I see you everyday when you're leaving,
leaving on your own
and I picture me beside you as you're making your way home.
I'd tell you to your face that I love you
and how I always wanted to...
well it sounds easy but talking is hard,
when I'm talking to a girl like you.

And when I see you out in the evening,
playing the single game,
I know you're feeling lonely and I'm feeling just the same.
I'm sure that one day I'll come on over,
and on that fatal day...
it won't be easy
'cos talking is hard
when I'm talking to a girl like you.
