Our silence makes the night much colder
And I can’t read the thoughts behind your eyes now
Waited so long, for a chance to tell you
The minutes wear away my heart

And can I make my life much bolder
Can I convince my mouth to tell you what I feel
Is this the time, ‘cause my heart keeps beating faster
And time won’t give back what it steals

And these are the things I need to say
I can’t wait another day
Can’t deny what I’ve been feeling
These are the things I need to do
Just to prove my heart is true
Can I be, the man I wanna be

And have I told you that I love you
And have I told you that you bring my soul alive
Girl do you know, that my world revolves around you
And can you see it in my eyes

I used to fear the door I’ve opened
Just knowing that I couldn’t take back what I said
But could I live without saying what I’m feelin’
What kind of life would I have led

And these are the things I need to say
Now I’ve figured out a way
To confess what I’ve been thinkin’
These are the things I need to do
Just to show my love for you
Can I be, the man I wanna be

Now that you’ve come to know what I’ve been hiding
Now that the truth has burst aflame
If I’ve set them free, the things I was denying
There’s only one hope left to name
So please just tell me that you feel, you feel the same

These are the things I need to say
I can’t wait another day
Can’t deny what I’ve been feeling
These are the things I need to do
Just to prove my heart is true
Can I be, the man you wanna see

These are the things I need to say
Now I’ve figured out a way
To confess what I’ve been thinkin’
These are the things I need to do
Just to show my love for you
Can I be, the man I wanna be

The man I wanna be
