So Many Ways

So many ways to say, “I’m sorry”
But I can’t find the words
I wish that I could make it better
God, I know this hurts

So many ways to say, “I need you”
You’re always on my mind
I only want to see you smile
And I want to find

A place, for us, so far away from everything, we are
An escape, upon a friendly star

And if you would only listen
Well, I would try to hear
To find a way to let you know
How much I want you near

If you would let me touch your heart
I know that you would find
So many ways, every day
You always do touch mine

So many ways to say, “I miss you”
That I hope you know
I wish that I could be there always
That I didn’t have to go

So many ways to try to help you
To better understand
The reasons why, although we try
We sometimes have to stand

Away, apart, to find a better place
And yet we know, deep down, it’s tough to make the start

And if you would only listen
Well, I would try to hear
To find a way to let you know
How much I want you near

If you would let me touch your heart
I know that you would find
So many ways, every day
You always do touch mine

So many ways to say, “I love you”
Nothing is more true
I wish that you could know how much
I so depend on you

So many ways to want to hold you
And tell you that I’m there
And as I go, always know
You’re with me everywhere

I am, I go, out across the miles and the days
Your smile, it’s there in so many ways

And if you would only listen
Well, I would try to hear
To find a way to let you know
How much I want you near

If you would let me touch your heart
I know that you would find
So many ways, every day
You always do touch mine
