If I only knew
somebody even just a little
bit like you
I'd hang on for real life
tell'em that I love 'em
tell'em that I need 'em
Everything's gonna be alright

When you're shy the world
is such a small little place
It's shrinking by the minute
and you're trying to invent
one more day
without playing it safe


sing CHORUS

[sing verse below first time through only]

If I only knew
the words that follow
"I like you"
I'd write them in the sand
on the back of my hand
I'd make sure they'd come out
when the time was right


sing CHORUS

[sing verse below on 2nd time through only]

If I only knew
the words that follow
"I like you"
I'd spell'em in the sky
from a plane on the go
I'd write 'em in the water
with the tip of my toe


[sing from top once]
