What I Really Meant To Say

Album: My World (2001)
Charted: 26
  • It took me by surprise
    When I saw you standing there
    Close enough to touch
    Breathing the same air
    You asked me how I've been
    I guess that's when I smiled and said just fine,
    Oh but baby, I was lying

    What I really meant to say
    Is I'm dying here inside
    And I miss you more each day,
    There's not a night I haven't cried
    And baby here's the truth
    I'm still in love with you,
    That's what I really meant to say

    And as you walked away
    The echo of my words
    Cut just like a knife
    Cut so deep it hurt
    I held back the tears
    Held onto my pride
    And watched you go
    I wonder if you'll ever know

    What I really meant to say
    Is I'm dying here inside
    And I miss more each day
    There's not a night I haven't cried
    And baby here's the truth
    I'm still in love with you

    What I really meant to say
    Is I'm really not that strong
    No matter how I try
    I'm still holdin' on
    And here's the honest truth
    I'm still in love with you

    Yeah, that's what I really meant to say
    That's what I really meant to say
    That's what I really meant to say. Writer/s: CHRIS WATERS, CYNDI GOODMAN, TOMMY LEE JAMES
