It was right on the tip of my tongue
 And I forgot to say "I love you"
 It was right on the tip of my tongue
 And I forgot to say "I love you"
 I played the game of love and lost
 And now my heart must pay the cost
 I had the chance to make you mine, but I wasted too much time
 And let your love slip away
 It was right on the tip of my tongue
 And I forgot to say "I love you"
 It was right on the tip of my tongue
 And I forgot to say "I love you"
 While I was wondering where to start
 She came along and won your heart
 With all the tender words of love that I was thinking of
 But never bothered to say
 Mmm, wait a minute, wait a minute
 I've got something to tell you
 Don't walk away, baby
 It was right on the tip of my tongue
 And I forgot to say "I love you"
 It was right on the tip of my tongue
 (And I forgot to say) to say, to say...
 (Ah, ah, ahh, tip of my tongue) my tongue
 (Tip of my tongue)
 
 Didn't you know? Couldn't you see?
 I tried to tell you--please...?
 Don't you understand? I love you...
 Don't walk away...oh, please...?
