What I Meant To Say

This song is by Daniel Powter and appears on the album Turn On The Lights (2012).

Taxi's pulling up at the front door
All I can do is look away
The silence's screaming out from the night before
From everything that we didn't say

We might fall apart
We might come undone
But there's something on the tip of my tongue

I told you I would be okay
I said I won't stand in your way
But I should have said I love you
I just want you to stay
That's what I meant to say

We never said a word through the weekend
Now Monday comes in like a storm
Never put the words to the feelings
So what is this apology for

If you're not with me
Won't know who to be
Never thought that you'd really leave

I told you I would be okay
I said I won't stand in your way
But I should have said I love you
I just want you to stay
That's what I meant to say

That I want you
Won't make it through this
Tongue tied and twisted
And close to alone
I hope it's not too late
To say what I meant to say

I told you I would be alright
I told myself the same old lies
But I should have held you closer
I just need you to stay

I told you I would be okay
I said I won't stand in your way
But I should have said I love you
I just want you to stay
That's what I meant to say
That's what I meant to say
That's what I meant to say
That's what I meant to say
That's what I meant
