Lyrics

Babe, tomorrow’s so far away

There’s something I just have to say

I don’t think I can hide what I’m feelin’ inside

Another day

Knowin’ I love you

And I, I’m getting too close again

I don’t want to see it end

If I tell you tonight

Would you turn out the lights

And walk away knowin’ I love you?

I’m gonna take you by surprise

And make you realize

Amanda

I’m gonna tell you right away

I can’t wait another day

Amanda

I’m gonna say it like a man

And make you understand

Amanda

I love you

And I feel like today’s the day

I’m lookin’ for the words to say

Do you want to be free, are you ready for me

To feel this way?

I don’t want to lose you

So, it may be too soon, I know

The feeling takes so long to grow

If I tell you today

Will you turn me away

And let me go?

I don’t want to lose you

I’m gonna take you by surprise

And make you realize

Amanda

I’m gonna tell you right away

I can’t wait another day

Amanda

I’m gonna say it like a man

And make you understand

Amanda (oh girl)

You and I

I know that we can’t wait

And I swear, I swear it’s not a lie girl

Tomorrow may be too late

You, you and I girl

We can share a life together

It’s now or never

And tomorrow may be too late (oh-oh)

And, feelin’ the way I do

I don’t want to wait my whole life through

To say I’m in love with you
