I should have done something again
I did nothing, watched us separate
What should I do now?
Run and chase you down
I can't hesitate

'Cause all I wanted to say is something real
All I want you to know is how I feel
All I wanted to give was my heart
But I'm stuck here at the start

It's on the tip of my tongue but I'm still afraid
Sometimes the only thing words do is get in the way
Sometimes the easiest things are the hardest to say

But I don't wanna lose you, drive you away
Don't wanna confuse you, I need you to stay
Only wish you knew what I wanted to say
Only wish you knew what I wanted to say

My hands are shaking
I'm yours for the taking
Don't you hesitate
Please just do one thing
One small sign, something
Let's jump off the edge

'Cause all I want you to say is something real
All I wanted to know is how you feel
All I want you to give is your heart
But we're stuck here at the start

It's on the tip of my tongue but I'm still afraid
Sometimes the only thing words do is get in the way
Sometimes the easiest things are the hardest to say

But I don't wanna lose you, drive you away
Don't wanna confuse you, I need you to stay
Only wish you knew what I wanted to say
Only wish you knew what I wanted to say

It's on the tip of my tongue but I'm still afraid
Sometimes the only thing words do is get in the way
Sometimes the easiest things are the hardest to say

But I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
No, I don't wanna lose you
No, I don't wanna lose you

I should have done something
I should have done something
I should have done something
But I never wanted to

I should have done something
I should have done something
I should have done something
But I never wanted to

I don't wanna lose you, drive you away
I don't wanna lose you
Only wish you knew what I wanted to say
No, I don't wanna lose you

I should have done something
I should have done something
I should have done something
But I never wanted to

I should have done something
I should have done something
I should have done something
But I never wanted to

What I wanted to say
What I wanted to say
What I wanted to say
