(Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh)

Lovely summer day, humbled you come 'round this way
And I know what the people say, and I don't mind
I know it's straight insane, like Superman and Louis Lane,
No, Parker and Cole Train on a twelve bar ride
Still, you offer me this day and tearfully I hesitate
Knowing I can't repay with a thousand lives
But humbly I take your name, knowing everything is changed
Trying hard to explain no words I find
Still, I wanna say I love ya

I wanna tell ya; I'll tell ya, but I can't explain it (oh)
I can't explain it 'cause I don't even know why (I wanna say I need you)
I guess you notice, I guess you know everything about
Lonely for the incident at the well

Well, it's been a few years now
And, still, sometimes when I'm in a crowd
I hear some folk whisperin' loud as they pass me by
"Remember that girl Michelle?
You know, that girl from the well?"
As I picked up my pail, I can't help by smile
'Cause they don't know the half of it (hey)
They don't know how deep it is (hey)
They don't know what you did
How you took my broken heart and put it back together again
I wanna say I love ya

I wanna tell ya; I'll tell ya, but I can't explain it (oh)
I can't explain it 'cause I don't even know why (don't even know why I want to say I needed you)
I guess you notice, I guess you know everything about (oh)
Lonely for the incident at the well (at the well)

(Wanna say I love ya)
I wanna tell ya; I'll tell ya, but I can't explain it (can't explain it, no)
I can't explain it 'cause I don't even know why (I wanna say how much I needed you)
I guess you notice, I guess you know everything about (I guess you knew)
Lonely for the incident at the well

[Bridge:]
Wanna say I love you (love you)
Wanna say I needed you (needed you)
I really wanna be with you (be with you)
And if they only knew I give all breaks to you
For the things you brought me through
And just before my simple song is through (through)
Please, let me say...

(I wanna say I love ya)
I wanna tell ya; I'll tell ya, but I can't explain it (can't explain it 'cause...)
I can't explain it 'cause I don't even know why
('Cause they don't know the half of it, hey; they don't know how deep it is)
I guess you notice, I guess you know everything about (they don't know)
Lonely for the incident at the well
(What you did, and how you took my heart and put it back again, yeah!)

(Wanna say I love ya)
I wanna tell ya; I'll tell ya, but I can't explain it (can't explain it, no)
I can't explain it 'cause I don't even know why (I wanna say how much I needed you)
I guess you notice, I guess you know everything about (I guess you knew)
Lonely for the incident at the well

I wanna tell ya; I'll tell ya, but I can't explain it (but I can't explain it)
I can't explain it 'cause I don't even know why (I don't even know; I guess you knew)
I guess you noticed, I guess you know everything about (oh)
Lonely for the incident at the well
