lyrics

I nearly did the unthinkable
Admitted the way I felt
I nearly told you I loved you
In spite of myself

I nearly breathed those words
Directly into your mouth
If you hadn’t sealed my lips with your kiss
I would’ve let it tumble out
I would’ve let it tumble out

I nearly told you I loved you
I nearly broke all my rules
And for maybe the first time, if I’m honest
I believed it to be true
I believed it to be true

CHORUS: Something’s in the air...
The air...
The air...
The air...

I nearly did the forbidden
Let you know how much I cared
I nearly lost myself for a moment
Just to find you there

I nearly told you I loved you
With the innocence of my youth
And you might’ve thought it was easy for me
If you only knew the truth
If you only knew the truth

CHORUS

Well I’m not saying this because I need it from you
It’s just a statement of fact that I believe to be true
I don’t need your approval or reciprocation
It’s just my first and my last heartfelt declaration

Be patient, heart, be patient
Be patient, heart, be patient

I nearly told you I loved you
Thank goodness I stopped myself
