Say It Now

Say It Now

Luther Vandross

I hope you hear this 'cause I'm about to say it now
Guess I'm to blame and it's just a shame
Cause I had the chance to tell you what you meant
But I lived my life thinking I had time
And that in my mind I'd get to it

Now you've gone away, not a single day goes by
When I don't think about it
Your spirit's all around, I can say it now
I hope you hear this

Now it's a shame that I found out the hard way
And it ain't the same
Cause you never ever got to hear me say
That I love you, 'cause I waited too late
So oh, I've got to tell everybody
Don't make the same mistake

[Chorus]
It's alright to say I love you out loud
And it's all good, so don't you keep it inside
Let it out, do it today
No no no, don't you wait
Cause it just might be too late
To say I love you

Don't walk a mile inside my shoes
Cause if you do, you're gonna regret it
Don't take it lightly thinking they might be
Here or there tomorrow

Why you want to wait, communicate
Don't assume that they already know
How much, how much you're really feeling
And you really, really love them

Now it's a shame that I found out the hard way
And it ain't the same
Cause you never ever got to hear me say
That I love you, 'cause I waited too late
It's like I would tell anybody
Don't make the same mistake like I did

[Chorus]

Those three words make all the difference in the world
You might wait and miss your chance
So don't be scared to say what you're feeling
You can't turn back the hands of time
If you get the chance, do it right
Let it out, say it now
Say it

[Chorus: x2]

I'm ready
Ready to shout it out, shout it out loud
So ready
Oh how I wish I could tell you right now
But I waited too late
So today I won't make the same mistake, no
I won't do it, and if I get the chance I'll say it

[Chorus: x3]

It's alright
