  • And I hate to say I love you
    When it's so hard for me
    And I hate to say I want you
    When you make it so clear
    You don't want me

    I'd never ask you cause deep down
    I'm certain I know what you'd say
    You'd say I'm sorry believe me
    I love you but not in that way

    And I hate to say I need you
    I'm so reliant
    I'm so dependent
    I'm such a fool

    When you're not there
    I find myself singing the blues
    Can't bear
    Can't face the truth

    You will never know that feeling
    You will never see through these eyes

    I'd never ask you
    'Cause deep down I'm certain I know what you'd say
    You'd say I'm sorry
    Believe me
    I love you
    But not in that way

    You'd say I'm sorry
    Believe me
    I love you
    But not in that way Writer/s: FRASER T. SMITH, SAM SMITH
