  • I'm scared to say I love you
    Afraid to let you know
    That the simplest of words
    Won't come out of my mouth
    Though I'm dying to let them go
    Trying to let you know

    I have to say I'm sorry
    Don't feel sad for me
    But the beautiful birds won't fly out of their cage
    Though I'm trying to set them free

    Trying to let you see, how much you mean to me
    I remember the first time we met
    Tears in our eyes reflecting
    Something connecting from so long ago

    It might have been told in the stars maybe that's what it was
    It doesn't matter because

    I'm still too scared to tell you
    Afraid to let you see
    That the simplest of words won't come out of my mouth
    Though I'm dying to set them free

    Trying to let you see, how much it means to me
    How much you mean to me
    How much you mean to me now Writer/s: Paul James McCartney
