I can't begin to tell you, how much you mean to me
My world would end, if ever we were through.
I can't begin to tell you, how happy I would be
If I could speak my mind, like other's do.
I make such pretty speeches,
Whenever we're apart,
But when you're near. the words I choose,
Refuse to leave my heart.
So, take the sweetest phrases (love songs)
The world has ever known
And make believe, I've said them (sung them) all to you.
