  • I get a little tongue twisted
    Every time I talk to you when I see you
    And I'm so glad that you just missed it
    The way I stared to memorize your face

    To kiss you in my mind
    Love you all the time

    'Cause when I close my eyes
    I still can see your smile
    It's bright enough to light my life
    Out of my darkest hour

    Please believe it's true
    When I tell you I love you

    I've taken too many chances
    Searching for the truth in love that's in my heart
    Tell me if I made the wrong advances
    Tell me if I've made you feel ashamed

    'Cause I know I have to do this
    Would you hold my hand right through it?

    'Cause when I close my eyes
    I still can see your smile
    It's bright enough to light my life
    Out of my darkest hour

    Please believe it's true
    When I tell you I love you

    I had to let you know just what would happen
    Yes I had to let you know the truth
    I know I've got to do this
    Would you hold my hand right through it? Would you?

    'Cause when I close my eyes
    I still can see your smile
    It's bright enough to light my life
    Out of my darkest hour

    'Cause when I close my eyes
    I still can see your smile
    It's bright enough to light my life
    Out of my darkest hour

    You know now this is true
    When I tell you I love you
    Ooh oh yeah Writer/s: MIGUEL MOREJON, JON SECADA

  • Franco from Los Angeles Part 2 continued:

    I think of her when the lyrics come on that say
    "tell me if I made the wrong advances"
    "I had to let you know the truth"

    Puts a lump in my throat.

    No darling, you did not make the wrong advances. You put yourself out there. You always let me know your truth. And I respect you for that. You always were truthful with me and put your feelings and intentions out there, and that takes a lot of guts.

    She used to write me the most thoughtful cards and letters in this Coco Chanel book that I still have and I will never get rid of. It was very heartfelt, and I always looked forward to reading them. Now, I miss that.

    Thank you for letting me know your truth...
  • Franco from Los Angeles This song has a special meaning for me .
    I broke up with my girlfriend of 6+ years memorial day weekend and then she sent this to me within the last couple weeks. She told me whenever she would see me, it would make her smile.
    It’s hard to listen to because when I see Gloria driving through Miami in the convertible, I think of the times that me and my girl used to go to Miami ; we would vacation there every year.

    When Gloria is at the diner and looks at the mystery guest arriving, that’s how my girlfriend would look at me when I would answer the door and when I would see her for the first time. We did everything together, travel, training, working out, watching the fights. But it didn’t work out. I’m not over her.

    I was always honest with her, I told her I did not want to be married, and she was going to go to nursing school but we started arguing too much, and I thought I was always walking on egg shells. It’s tough because she was someone who made me happy and now she’s gone. The most beautiful lady I ever knew.

    Great song - thanks to the best Cuban singer.
