Lyrics

If I Tell Her I Love Her

Don't wanna peak too early,
Don't wanna wait too long.
Don't wanna spook the girl,
Coming on too strong.
I love the way she pouts her lips,
The way she looks, the way she laughs.
Should I jump right off this cliff,
Or keep holding back?

If I tell her I love her,
Everything's gonna change.
She might say she loves me too,
Or she might get strange--
Might be heaven, might be hell,
But I can't un-ring the bell
If I tell her I love, tell her I love,
Tell her I love her.
If I tell her I love, tell her I love,
Tell her I love her.

Don't wanna look too nervous,
I try to act so cool.
But every line I practice,
Sounds like junior high school.
I stammer when she looks at me,
I hesitate, I lose my nerve.
It's up to me to make her see
I'm the man for her.

If I tell her I love her,
Everything's gonna change.
She might say she loves me too,
Or she might get strange--
Might be heaven, might be hell,
But I can't un-ring the bell
If I tell her I love, tell her I love,
Tell her I love her.
If I tell her I love, tell her I love,
Tell her I love her.

(Guitar solo)

I got to get this off my chest,
I can't wait one minute more.
I don't know what happens next,
But this much is for sure--

If I tell her I love her,
Everything's gonna change.
She might say she loves me too,
Or she might get strange--
Might be heaven, might be hell,
But I can't un-ring the bell
If I tell her I love, tell her I love,
Tell her I love her.
If I tell her I love, tell her I love,
Tell her I love her.
