I Can't Tell You

from Right Side Of Zero (1996) by Darryl Purpose

lyrics

Some things are better left unsaid
Some things stay locked inside my head
I say I love you like a friend
I see you when the loving ends
I help you through your latest tragedy

I've hid my desire
Now I feel so inspired
To tell you all I cannot say

CHORUS:
I can't tell you that I want you
But I think you know it's true
After all your men have come and gone
Who loves you more than me?
I Can't Tell You

When words don't work the way we know
The language of the heart still goes
I'll try to show you all I mean
Not just a part in some grand scheme
We can be anything we want to be

But now I cannot say
Letters you'll read some day
Will tell you all I cannot now

CHORUS:
I can't tell you that I want you
But I think you know it's true
After all your men have come and gone
Who loves you more than me?
I Can't Tell You
