Lyrics
VERSE 1
A voice inside me is bursting to speak
But things just get in the way
Waiting for an unknown sign I seek
Looking for that perfect day
Looking for that perfect day

VERSE 2
I wanted to tell you this morning
I wanted to tell you last spring
For you I am longing and yearning
For you - my heart sings!
For you - my heart sings!

CHORUS
Why do I stumble when I start to speak?
Just as your breath brushes my cheek...
I avoid meeting your eyes?
How can I find the courage to fail?
Where and when seems to no avail (I will prevail or I will not bail )
But that's what our love needs...
to... survive! Yes, indeed

{Whistling solo over Verse form}

VERSE 3
So I summon my will and dial your phone
In a shy and uncertain way
Secretly hoping that you won't be at home
'Cause I really don't know what to say
I really don't know what to say

VERSE 4
How can I ask - be me mine tonight?
When I'm totally frozen with fear
Seems like the time will never be right
Just hoping that you'll still be near Hoping that you'll still be near

Chorus 2
The lights are low at the movie show
My palms sweat as the tension grows
And the popcorn salt teases our lips
Where and when is here and now
Amazing I found the courage somehow
This love with be
Do or die! ...You and I

{Short whistling solo}

VERSE 2 (Repeated)
I wanted to tell you this morning
I wanted to tell you last spring
For you I am longing and yearning
For you - my heart sings!
For you - my heart sings!

For you my heart sings
For you my heart sings
