I Want To Tell You [Harrison}

I want to tell you
My head is filled with things to say
When you’re here
All those words, they seem to slip away
When I get near you
The games begin to drag me down
It’s alright I’ll make you maybe next time around
But if I seem to act unkind
It’s only me, it’s not my mind
That is confusing things
I want to tell you I feel hung up but I don’t know why
I don’t mind I could wait forever,
I’ve got time
Sometimes I wish I knew you well,
Then I could speak my mind and tell you
Maybe you’d understand
I want to tell you I feel hung up but I don’t know why
I don’t mind I could wait forever, I’ve got time, I’ve got time, I’ve got time
