if not now then when lyrics – basia

what would you say if i told you – day and night you’re in my head
i can only imagine how this could be like having beside me someone like you
one thing i know – you won’t see me wasting any time
it doesn’t pay to be careful when my starving heart is on the line

what will you say when i ask you – who would love you more than i?
this could be right and every cliche in a love song will be applying to us
take me as i am
if not now, then when?
you don’t want to miss the best thing in your life

what would you say if i told you – day and night you’re in my head
i can only dream how this must be like having with me someone exactly like you
i will waste no time, one thing i know now
it doesn’t pay to be careful when my starving heart is on the line

oh, what will you say when i ask you – who would love you more than i?
this could be right and every cliche in a love song will be applying to us
take me as i am
if not now, then when?
you don’t want to miss the best thing in your life

i could sit and cry
instead i’ll risk my pride
’cause baby i’m determined not to miss the best thing in my life

yes, you are, oh, the best thing in my life
’cause if not now then when?
what would you say?
what would you do?
why wait?
why not now, why not now, why not now?
