If I loved you, time and again I would try to say all I'd want you to know.
If I loved you, words wouldn't come in an easy way. 'Round in circles I'd go!
Longing to tell you, but afraid and shy, I'd let my golden chances pass me by.
Soon you'd leave me. Off you would go in the mist of day, never, never to know
How I loved you, if I loved you!

I must have rehearsed my lines a thousand times,
Until I had them memorized.
But when I get up the nerve to tell you, the words
Just never seem to come out right.

Asuka's inner voice (smugly): Are you SURE you don't need my help?
Asuka: I kinda... love you.
Shnji:... I love you too Asuka.

"I resolved to call her up
A thousand times a day,
And ask her if she'll marry me,
In some old-fashioned way,
But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone,
And before my tongue has tripped me,
Must I always be alone?"
The Police, "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"

Hank: Why don't you come out and tell her how you feel?
Scott: Jean and I are just friends.
Hank: There's nothing wrong with wanting to be more.
Scott: (glaring) There is if I screw it up and it blows this team apart. There's a lot more to consider than how I feel. Besides, Jean has stated over and over again she's not interested in a serious relationship. So it's better for us to stay friends.

"You face away, thinking me blind,
Like I don't know what you won't show.
So listen, can I tell you a thing
Real quick before something comes in-between
Do you think— Wait a sec
I think you— That's not it
Would you be— Words are just impossible to find

'Cause the right words never come
It all comes out silly-dumb
And all the things I need to say
And all the big words seem to stay on the inside
Sayonara Wild Hearts, "Inside"

Rapunzel (playing the part of Cassandra): You're right, Rapunzel, it may be your fault. Partially, ''but maybe if I had been more honest about how I was feeling things would not have gone this far.

Rapunzel: Just because it's not easy doesn't mean you shouldn't do it.
