New Song I should have told her

I should have told her

I laid in bed without you counting all the stars just to know how many wishes I had to make a wish that you were back here in this bed laying in my arms I miss you more than I ever thought I could and I need you more than I even knew I would I wish I would have told you I wish I would have said I wish you were laying laying laying right here next to me in this bed.

You left me all alone without even a clue of who I was what we were before I ever knew that love needs to hear love needs share because I always thought that you knew I should have said it showed you more it's too late but so you know I love you and I always will.


Chorus
You got to hold her tight every night
and tell her what the truth is let her
know how much love you have for her
if you don't she'll be gone without a sign
I wish I had told her then and maybe just
maybe she would still be mine.


If you were here in front of me I would show you so you could see I loved you then, in fact, I still do I should have told you now I'm feeling blue laying here counting all the stars making wishes that they were you.

Maybe one day when all the stars have fallen you will hear my wish wishing you well and that I miss you then you will know that I tried my best but darling as for now I will think of you as the tears and stars fall on by from all the skies and my eyes.


Chorus:
You got to hold her tight every night
and tell her what the truth is let her
know how much love you have for her
if you don't she'll be gone without a sign
I wish I had told her then and maybe just
maybe she would still be mine.

Chorus:
You got to hold her tight every night
and tell her what the truth is let her
know how much love you have for her
if you don't she'll be gone without a sign
I wish I had told her then and maybe just
maybe she would still be mine.
