Lyrics

Walking home with you that night,
well, you walked and let me ride your bike
because my legs were tired from dancing with you.
You sat beside me on the swing
the silence between us was deafening,
and I looked up to the stars and prayed:
What should I do?I so badly wanted to kiss you,
but all I heard was,
"Not now... not now..."

*Oh why'd you say those words
the night I had to go
it's just not the right time, not now.
Oh why'd you use those words
those heavy little words
when you can't carry them
yeah, you don't know how.*

My last night in town
we walked to the front lawn and both laid down
and you began to pray such sweet words over me.
But what we didn't say
is what would happen when I flew away,
or how I'd feel if you were to say...
don't say it now...
not now...

**

Now though I'm far away
is your heart still in the same place,
or am I out of sight and out of mind?
Until the jasmine blooms fade
my heart doesn't want to be swayed,
not now.

Oh why'd you say those words
the night I had to go
it's just not the right time, not now.
Oh why'd you use those words
those three heavy words
when you can't carry them, you
