This song was written in 2006 as a grad school assignment. Our professor challenged us to write a love song without using the word "love," so I made that limitation the center of the piece. Enjoy!
There’s something I’ve been keeping from you
for a long, long time
I’ve waited for the perfect cue and today is prime
So brace yourself... ‘cause here I go...
There’s something that I want you to know...
There's a really important thing I have to say,
So I’m gonna tell you right here, right away-ay-ay...
Do you promise me you’ll listen?
Promise you won’t laugh?
‘Cause if you did, you know it’d cut my confidence
in half…. of half… of half…
please don’t laugh.
This is the day I reveal to you, for real to you, how I feel. To you.
This is the day I expose it, disclose it, here goes….. it’s just… that… I… should have told you sooner,
but I…don’t think it’s ever been opportuner!
So now I’ve gotten off my tush,
no more beating around the bush
I’m gonna tell you by all means, I’ll spill my heart;
and the beans!
It’s time I confessed, got it all off my chest.
Heck, by now you may have even guessed…
I luhh… I luhhh...
I wrote a little poem, for such a situation
So I hope you get my meaning from this little recitation…
(Produces piece of paper.)
Excuse my hesitation…
'It’s time I told you...
That all I want forever is to hold you,
It must have taken God a while to mold you,
My heart falls out the moment I behold you..."
(She kisses him.)
…I’m glad I told you.
