C          C7
Darling I love you

 F                                C               G 
It's been so long since I said it in a song, for you

C                     C7
It's like I've been away

 F                              C                   G
Never had a chance to stay and talk like this, to you

E7                Am             F            C
Lately I've been hanging around and it's overdue

C-C7      F                                                C
Darling, it's been so long since I've said it in a song

G            C
That I love you

Additional verses:

I could paint the pictures
In words and rhyme, in time you'll know just what
I'm trying to say
But I'd rather tell you straight out
Tell you plain so there is no doubt showing in your face
So you'll know just how I feel
About all that we've been through
Darling, it's been so long since I've said it in a song
That I love you

You were always there for me
I want to be there too
Darling, It's been too long since I've told you in a song
That I love you
