Why can't you tell me you love me?

Why is it so hard to just say it?
You say you feel it.
You don't have to say it.
But I want to hear it.

You say you don't want to be forward.
Please, take the jump.
Into my arms, you will fall.

You don't want to say it all the time.
You don't want it to lose its shine.
**** that! I want you to give me some peace of mind.

You don't want to say it first.
Fine, let me take that step.
Let that burden be lifted.

I love you like fish love the sea.
Without you, I can't breathe.
I will stare down the sun, I will go to the moon.
Just to hear you say, you love me too.
