Moment of honesty
Someones gotta take the lead tonight
Whose it gonna be?
I'm gonna sit right here
And tell u while it comes to me
If u have something to say
U should say it right now

U give me a feeling that I never felt before
And I deserve it, I know I deserve it
It's become something that's impossible to ignore
And I can't take it
I was wondering maybe
Could I make you my baby
If we do the unthinkable will it make us look crazy
If you ask me I'm ready
If you ask me I'm ready

I know u said to me
"This is exactly how it should feel when it's meant to be"
Time is only wasting so why wait for eternity
If we gonna do something about it
We should do it right now

U give me a feeling that I never felt before
And I deserve it, I know I deserve it
It's become something that's impossible to ignore
It's what we make it
I was wondering maybe
Could I make you my baby
If we do the unthinkable will it make us look crazy
Or would it be so beautiful either way I'm sayin
If you ask me I'm ready
If you ask me I'm ready

Why give up before we try
Feel the lows before the highs
Clip our wings before we fly away
I can't say I can't compare
I'm suspended it the air
Won't u come be in the sky with me

I was wondering maybe
Could I make you my baby
If we do the unthinkable will it make us look crazy
Or would it be so beautiful either way I'm sayin
If you ask me I'm ready
If you ask me I'm ready

    doing the unthinkable! love to me is the unthinkable when you have that one person who you can shear your true feelings to. you think about the thinkable person in your life at the moment if it dont hurt its not love.

    The song is about doing the Unthinkable with someone you love but you both know you shouldn't be in love with one another. The two of you shouldn't even be thinking about being with one another. But the sad part is that both of you are ready to take the next step...to do the unthinkable no matter the consequences or how people perceive either one of you.

    This song is about a man or a women who is very much in love with someone they have been with for a couple of months and have decided that it is time to move the relation to the next level.
