"Tell Him"
RealAudio clip

Many years ago, my friend David Foster told me about a young singer from Canada named Celine Dion. He said she was really someone to watch. Over the years, I definitely did watch her, and I think she's absolutely fabulous. She has a kind heart and an amazing voice! As for the song, it's about an older (and hopefully wiser) woman advising a younger woman in love. I figure Virginia would have said, "Tell him... tell him you love him." It's better to err on the side of generosity when it comes to life and love.

I'm scared
So afraid to show I care
Will he think me weak
If I tremble when I speak
Oooh - what if
There's another one he's thinking of
Maybe he's in love
I'd feel like a fool
Life can be so cruel
I don't know what to do

I've been there
With my heart out in my hand
But what you must understand
You can't let the chance
To love him pass you by

Should I

Tell him
Tell him that the sun and moon
Rise in his eyes
Reach out to him
And whisper
Tender words so soft and sweet
Hold him close to feel his heart beat
Love will be the gift you give yourself

Touch him
With the gentleness you feel inside
Your love can't be denied
The truth will set you free
You'll have what's mean to be
All in time you'll see

I love him
Of that much I can be sure
I don't think I could endure
If I let him walk away
When I have so much to say

Love is light that surely glows
In the hearts of those who know
It's a steady flame that grows
Feed the fire with all the passion you can show
Tonight love will assume its place
This memory time cannot erase
Blind faith will lead love where it has to go

Never let him go
