something your heart has been telling me (demo version) lyrics – bette midler

last night i heard you calling
i heard you calling out a name
i did not know
woke up and tears were falling
yes tears were falling all around
“my bed of woe”

here’s a situation
right before my eyes i can’t ignore it
your new infatuation
but i knew it long before

there is something your heart has been telling me
but it’s something i already know
you’re a man who “conceals” all the things that he feels
and won’t let go
even though
there’s a love burning inside of you
with a flame so fierce and so bright
but i know you so well
i just had to tell you tonight

today the day is dawning
you sit in silence in the “half” light
of the room
outside the sun is shining
i keep on smiling trying hard
to pierce the gloom

here’s a situation
right before my eyes i can’t ignore it
your new infatuation
but i knew it long before

there is something your heart has been telling me
but it’s something i already know
you’re a man who “conceals” all the things that you feel
and won’t let go
even though
there’s a love burning inside of you
with a flame so fierce and so bright
but i love you so well
i just had to tell you tonight

think of the water beneath the bridge
sailing “our boats” against the tide
think of the life that we have lived
and of the times we cried
“givin’ old love” half a chance
and we will be all right

there is something my heart has been telling me
but it’s something i already know
“why try to conceal” all the things that you feel
and not let go
even though
there’s a love burning inside of me
with a flame so hot and so bright
“oh” i love you so well
i just had to tell you tonight
