I've made up my mind,
Don't need to think it over,
If I'm wrong I am right,
Don't need to look no further,
This ain't lust,
I know this is love but,

If I tell the world,
I'll never say enough,
Cause it was not said to you,
And that's exactly what I need to do,
If I'm in love with you,

Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even If I knew my place should I leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere

I'd build myself up,
And fly around in circles,
Waiting as my heart drops,
And my back begins to tingle
Finally could this be it or

Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even If I knew my place should I leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere

Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even If I knew my place should I leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep on chasing pavements?
Should I just keep on chasing pavements?

Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even If I knew my place should I leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere

    So you have deep, complex and meaningful feelings for someone..?

    Do you build up the nerve to tell them given whatever the circumstance of the relationship ... long distance, unrequited, or involvement with someone else..?

    You may later regret the feelings of rejection or wasted time.

    But will you take a risk, a chance at love ,or keep waiting for the "right one".
    Will you risk possibly having your heart broken in a relationship where you feel " spine-tingling" love , all the while knowing it might go nowhere ?
    Or would you prefer to tread carefully, maybe into a mediocre relationship.
    Give up putting your whole self and committment into a relationship whatever difficult, stony or narrow path that might lead to, or travel the
    easy, mediocre pavement path in a relationship.

    For me this song has so much attached to it... Im a guy who had the most wonderful thing in life and because I didnt listen to her I lost her andam living in hell everyday now... she would try to play this after 6 years telling me listen to this listen..and I never listened to the words until she was gone.She was trying so hard to tell me she was hurting because I was not telling her..I might have thought I was letting the world know but like the song said it doesnt matter cause it was not said to her and if I loved her thats who i should have been saying it to...now I lost her and hear those lyrics everyday...make sure you truely listen...

    I have deep feelings for a guy but we started in the wrong. It will be very complicated if we stay together, and we both know it. The song speaks what i feel, whether i should fight for this feeling or let him go..
