LyricsEdit

Just let me say it now
So at least I know you hear:
“I love you, dear.”

I don’t know
How to make this anymore clear;
I want you near.

So sometimes when I miss you (every day),
I look right in the mirror and say:

“Why’d you let it slip away?
Why’d you let it slip away?
I don’t know,
I don’t know any better than you
Why I let this slip away.
I don’t know,
I don’t know why things worked out this way.
Why’d I let this slip away?
Why’d I let this slip away?”

Don’t hold it against me
If I want to hold
Your hand.

And don’t push me down
If I tell you I want to stand
Beside you.

Still, sometimes when memories run too deep,
I merely close my eyes
And weep—
And whisper:

“Why’d you let it slip away?
Why’d you let it slip away?
I don’t know,
I don’t know any better than you do
Why you let this slip away.
I don’t know,
I don’t know why things worked out this way.
Why’d you let this slip away?
Why’d you let this slip away?”

But I have to ask:
“Could you believe in me
If I told you I’d learned to believe in myself?
And could you love me
If I told you I’d learned to love myself?
And could you trust in me
If I told you that all I say is true,
And that, in the end,
I still love you?”

I won’t let this slip away.
No, I won’t,
No, I won’t—
Not today;
I won’t let this slip away.
No, I won’t,
No, I won’t—
Not ever.
I won’t let this slip away.
No, I won’t,
No, I won’t—
Because I made a promise.
I won’t let this slip away.
No, I won’t,
No, I won’t,
‘Cause I’ll love you
Forever.
