Been Meaning To Tell You

Album: Yet to be titled (2017)
  • You've been on my mind
    And I know it's bad timing
    To say anything I feel
    And it's probably surprising, oh yeah

    It's been too long and I heard that you moved on
    But I just need to let you know
    I pushed you away when your heart was right here
    And now it's haunting me

    I've been meaning to tell you
    Oh na na na na
    I've been meaning to tell you, oh
    but now you're gone

    I know that she loves you
    But I know that you know that
    And now you're gone
    Now you're gone
    I know that she loves you
    But I had these feelings for you all along
    Now you're gone

    Been wanting to tell you
    But it was too easy to live in a lie
    I thought that I brought it out
    'Til the train finally tipped on its side
    That's when I knew I couldn't hide
    That's when the trouble arrived
    Thanking the bitter reminder
    That you're no longer mine

    It's been too long and I heard that you moved on
    But I just need to let you know
    I pushed you away when your heart was right here
    And now it's haunting me

    I've been meaning to tell you
    Oh na na na na
    I've been meaning to tell you, oh
    but now you're gone

    I know that she loves you
    But I know that you know that
    And now you're gone
    Now you're gone
    I know that she loves you
    But I had these feelings for you all along
    Now you're gone

    It's been too long and I heard that you moved on
    But I just need to let you know
    I pushed you away when your heart was right here
    And now it's haunting me

    I've been meaning to tell you
    Oh na na na na
    I've been meaning to tell you, oh
    but now you're gone

    I know that she loves you
    But I know that you know that
    And now you're gone
    Now you're gone
    I know that she loves you
    But I had these feelings for you all along
    Now you're gone Writer/s: Starley Hope, Abayomi Kadejoh, Cory Nitta
