I never told her. I never said the words. How could I let her go? Why didn't I tell her? Max and Liz say it all the time. Why can't I? Why didn't I try harder?

Spending another night alone
Wondering when I'm gonna ever
See you again
Thinking what I would give to get
You back, baby
I should have told you how I felt then
Instead I kept it to myself, yes
I let my love go unexpressed
'Till it was too late
You walked away

She broke with me. *She* broke up with *me.* I'm the stone wall, cold and unemotional. How can she have this effect on me? I promised myself that I'd never get close to anyone, yet she got in. I didn't tell her. Will I regret it forever? She got me, hook, line, and sinker. She's the first girl, the *only* girl I've ever kissed. I didn't realize how much I looked forward to seeing her each and every day.

Was it something I didn't say
When I didn't say "I love you"
Was it words that you never heard
All those times, all those nights, when
I had a change to
Was it something I didn't say

She wanted romance, but I didn't know where to start. If I only had her back, I'd giver her all the flowers, hugs, and kisses she wanted. We spent so much time together. She knows everything about me. She knows me better than I know myself, as cliche that sounds. I lost her. I didn't say it, and she's gone. I'm alone again. Maybe this is the way it's supposed to be. Maybe I'm destined to be alone, catching only glimpses of happiness, before slipping back into lonrliness.

Always assumed that you'd be there
Couldn't forsee the day you'd ever
Be leaving me
How could I let my world slip through
My hands, baby
I took it for granted you knew, yeah
All the love I had for you, yeah
I guess you never had a clue
'Till it was too late
You walked away

I built my world around her. What do you do when your world is gone? I thought she knew. I didn't know I needed to tell her. How could she go? I need her. She's my only piece of sanity in this crazy world. She's always there for me, with her car, with her hugs, with her kisses. She knows when to ask questions and push me, and when to just let me cry in her arms. Now, she's gone. My Maria is gone.

Was it something I didn't say
When I didn't say "I love you"
Was it words that you never heard
All those words I should have told you
All those times, all those nights, when I
Had a chance to
Was it something I didn't say

She said that I never told her, that she never knew, that it was too late. And she walked away. She's gone. After she left, I cried, for only the second time in my life. This time she wasn't there to comfort me.

All those words were in my heart
They went unspoken
Baby, now my silent heart is a heart
That's broken
Should've let you know you're the one
I needed near me
But I never let you hear me.

A broken heart. I never thought that I'd have one. Now I know. I know the pain, the anguish. And it's all my fault. I never told her, she never knew. I know now that if I ever get a change again, if she ever lets me near her again, that I'd tell her. I'd tell her, "I love you."

Was it something I didn't say
When I didn't say "I love you"
Was it words that you never heard
All those words I should have told you
All those times, all those nights, when
I had the change to
Was it something I didn't say

End.
