Ooh ooh!
I, play the part of a broken heart upon a shell
I played that part so lonely and so well
Thought that love belonged to someone else
Not me and you
Yeah, I know that you've been shattered, you've been bruised
And we both know what it feels like when you lose
But I'd bet my life on a roll of the dice for you

If that's what it takes, that's what I'd do
Tonight's the night, I'm gonna prove it to you
Do I have to break down, baby just to break through
If that's what it takes, then that's what I'd do
If that's what it takes

I, bet you counted all the tears, I bet you've cried
I bet you swore you never let her back inside
'Cause it hurt you way too bad to say goodbye
Now there'll be times when I might put us to the test
And it's hard for broken hearts to just forget
But I'm driving blind I'll lay it all on the line for you

If that's what it takes, that's what I'd do
Tonight's the night, I'm gonna prove it to you
Do I have to break down, baby just to break through
If that's what it takes, that's what I'd do
If that's what it takes
Oh yeah, yea

So, when you feel like jumpin'
Just when your heart starts pumpin'
And you standin' on that ledge
Staring over the edge
I'll be there to talk you down
I'll be there before you hit the ground

If that's what it takes, that's what I'd do
Tonight's the night, I'm gonna prove it to you
Do I have to break down, baby just to break through oh!
If that's what it takes, that's what I'd do
If we take the time to get it right, I know we'll put through
If I talked all my life, I'd prove it to you
If that's what it takes, that's what I'd do
If that's what it takes
I'd do anything baby

Ohh ohh ohh
Oh yeah!
I'll do anything you want me to
Baby for bringing you
It's so bad
Alright
Alright
Alright
Alright
Ohh ohh ohh ohh
Oh oh!
Oh baby!
Oh oh!
Ohh ohh ohh ohh
Oh oh!
