I've got a reputation of being a man with a gift of words.
A romantic poetic type; or so they say.
But I find it hard to express the way I feel about you
Without getting involved with the old cliches.
In the old cliches, it's the old cliches.
This song's begun so many times, but never
In a way that you won't consider to be an old cliche.
I want to say that I need you, I miss you when you're away.
And how it seemed like fate - o here we go - the same old cliches.
It's the same old cliches.
It's not that I'm embarrassed or shy, well, you know me too well,
But I want to make this song special in a way that you can tell.
That it's solely for you and nobody else.
For my best friend, my lover, when I need help, cliche, cliche.
Everything I want to say to you is wrapped up in an old cliche.
I'd waited so long to find you, I'd been through the heartbreak and pain,
But of course you already know that 'cause you've been through the same.
That's why I'm trying to say with my deepest sincerity.
That's why I'm finding it comes down to the basic simplicities.
The best way is with an old cliche.
It's simply the best way; is with an old cliche.
Always the best way is with an old cliche.
I'll leave it to the best way, it's an old cliche:
I love you.
