What Made You Say That

  • Maybe tonight I'm gonna tell him how I feel
    Maybe I'll leave well enough alone
    Maybe, just maybe, he'll want to be my baby
    What if he's got plans of his own

    I'm waiting for the perfect moment
    Looking for the perfect phrase
    The one I finally choose is simply "I love you"
    And as the words came out I heard a voice inside me say

    What made you say that
    Was it the moonlight, was it the starlight in your eyes
    What made you say that
    Have you been listening to your heart
    It's too late now, you don't want to take it back
    'Cause I know love's what made you say that

    I Look up to see his reaction
    And a smile slowly spread across his face
    He said "What took you so long
    That's what I've been waiting on
    I thought you'd take forever and a day"

    What made you say that
    Was it the moonlight, was it the starlight in your eyes
    What made you say that
    Have you been listening to your heart
    It's too late now, I won't let you take it back
    'Cause I know love's what made you say that

    What made you say that
    Was it the moonlight, was it the starlight in your eyes
    What made you say that
    Have you been listening to your heart
    It's too late now, you don't want to take it back
    'Cause I know love's what made you say that

    Was it the moonlight, was it the starlight in your eyes
    What made you say that
    Have you been listening to your heart
    What made you say that
    Oh, what made you say that
    What made you say that
    Was it the moonlight, was it the starlight in your eyes
    What made you say that
    Have you been listening to your heart Writer/s: Stan Jr. Munsey, Tony Haselden
