All this talking to you
I don't know what I'm to do
I don't know where you stand
What's inside of your head

All this thinking of you
Is that what your doing too?
You're always on my mind
I talk about you all the time

Chorus:

Don't waste another day
Don't waste another minute
I can't wait to see your face
Just to show how much I'm in it
So open up your heart
Help me understand
Please tell me who you are
So I could show you who I am

You're just standing by
You're just wasting time
Why don't you just tell me the truth about me and you
And as the time goes by
I hope you realise
If you ask me to
I just might be with you

So don't waste another day
Don't waste another minute
I can't wait to see your face
Just to show how much I'm in it
So open up your heart
Help me understand
Please tell me who you are
So I could show you who I am

Bridge:

Stop Standing there, (standing there)
And stop acting like you don't care
And stop being scared, (being scared)
Stop acting like you don't care..

So, don't waste another day
Don't waste another minute
I can't wait to see your face
Just to show how much I'm in it
So open up your heart
Help me understand
Please tell me who you are
So I could show you who I am

So, don't waste another day
Don't waste another minute
I can't wait to see your face
Just to show how much I'm in it
Open up your heart
Help me understand
Please tell me who you are
So I could show you who I am

Who I am, who I am, who I am..

    She likes him, she thinks he likes her. They talk all the time. But even though they both have this connection he doesn't do anything about it, whether he's scared or just not interested she doesn't know, but she wants him to tell her because it's really confusing to her. He's acting like he doesn't care but she can't help but think he does.. Yet he still doesn't do anything! I relate to this song so much..

    i can really relate to this song cuz i'm going through the EXACT same thing. Where the guy won't make a move and you can't tell if it's because he doesn't like you or if it's because he's too scared and it's confusing. I have no idea if I should make the move or just wait. I really dont want to be the one to make a move though so I guess I'm stuck waiting. And he keeps standing there. =/

    this is the best song because they dont end up together in the end which means lots of people will relate to it
