Original Song: I Can’t Say I Love You

by Jon Pinney on February 14, 2013

“Perfect” for Valentine’s Day, this is a song I wrote a few years ago and recorded while at school. This is also only a demo, but I have been thinking of rerecording this song and using it on my second album. Enjoy!

I Can’t Say I Love You
Words and Music by Jon Pinney

What can I say to you
I’m who I am
And I know I’m not ready
To be a full man
I’ve got dreams for my own life
And where I will go
And I know that I cannot take you there
This path is my own

Chorus
I can’t say that I love you
I can’t say I will stay
I can’t say I will be here
When the night turns to day

Softly you whisper
Don’t let me go
But I already let my heart
Walk through the door
I’ll stay here beside you
While you fall asleep
But I can’t make the promise
That I’m not gonna leave

Chorus

I can’t say I love the way you look at me
I can’t say I love the way your hair falls down your face
I can’t say the only time I feel alive is in your arms
I just can’t say it cause I’m afraid I’ll mean it

Chorus

I can’t say I love you
I can’t say I need you
I can’t say all the things I wanna say to your face
Cause baby I’m afraid
