[Nick:]
Ooh
How many times am I gonna let you walk right past
I swear sometimes I think I'm moving too fast
You never know if it's gonna last
I guess that's what scares me sometimes

[Brian:]
Ooh
I know it ain't right but I don't wanna let me care
I wanna know love but I'm a little scared
You never know what you're gonna get
And that is what scares me sometimes, times

The next time love comes my way
I'm gonna let it happen, happen baby
If ever I make, made a mistake
I've been a rebel too long
A rebel too long, a rebel too long
(A rebel too long)

[AJ:]
Yeah
I don't hurt people that don't hurt me back, yeah
I turned to war and I'm so tired of that (Mhmm)
I'm ready to walk my guides down
I'm done playing tough guy for now, for now

[AJ:]
Everybody deserves taking chances
And that only flies in certain circumstances
Can't keep running away from these feelings
Everybody needs someone sometimes
Sometime

The next time love comes my way
I'm gonna let it happen, happen baby
If ever I make, made a mistake
I've been a rebel too long
A rebel too long, a rebel too long
(A rebel too long)

[Howie:]
And before this moment fades away
I wanted you to know I made mistakes
But even if there's no more words to say
I tried to be better without you

The next time love comes my way
I'm gonna let it happen, happen baby
If ever I make, made a mistake
I've been a rebel too long
A rebel too long, a rebel too long
(A rebel too long)

The next time love comes my way
I'm gonna let it happen, happen baby
If ever I make, made a mistake
I've been a rebel too long
A rebel too long, a rebel too long
(A rebel too long)
Oh
