I woke up
In the middle of the night
Out of luck
With this girl on my mind
She got away now
I'm trying to explain how
I fell inlove
That's what I like to call it
But not enough
It's like I never saw it
Drifting away I am
Finding words to say
But it all goes
Whoa(x8)
What does it take to get you
If I never met you
I wouldn't have ran
Across the country like
I'm out of my mind
What does it take to hold you
(Ah Ohh aah Ohhhhh)
When I'm here without you
(Ah Ohh aah Ohhhhh)
I don't know where to start
I gotta find you and your heart
Before it falls apart

I stayed up
In the dead of the night
I made plans
If they turn out right
You'll close your eyes and
Think about the times when
Think about it
We fell in love
But didn't try to say it
Knew what it was
The moment that we played it
We all lose sometimes
I can't get her off my mind
Whoa whoa
I'm Finding words to say
But it all goes
Whoa whoa
What does it take to get you
If I never met you
I wouldn't have ran
Across the country like
I'm out of my mind
What does it take to hold you
(Ah Ohh aah Ohhhhh)
When I'm here without you
(Ah Ohh aah Ohhhhh)
I don't know where to start
I gotta find you and your heart
Before it falls apart

What does it take to make it real
The world still spinds and
I'm still feeling
Your hand right next to mine
I play it back thousand times
I wish I took a photograph
For every moment that we laughed
I'm hung up and can't relax
Because she's so far way
What does it take to get you(x3)
If I never met you
I wouldn't have ran
Across the country like
I'm out of my mind
What does it take to hold you
(Ah Ohh aah Ohhhhh)
When I'm here without you
(Ah Ohh aah Ohhhhh)
I don't know where to start
I gotta find you and your heart
Before it falls apart
What does it take
I'm finding words to say
Before it falls apart(x2)
Yeah yeah
Before it falls apart...

    Im falling for this girl who has a terrible boyfriend. He cheats, lies and puts her down, treats her like crap. I believe this song is just like my life. A guy who just wants to be able to make an amazing girl happy, and see her smile without some jerk putting her down 24/7.

    Story of my life... Except i'm a girl, and i never will get the guy... The worst part is we talk every day and he still acts like i'm nothing to him.

    A guy that would do anything 4 this one girl. He would do anything 2 make her happy and do anything 2 just 2 be with her! He shows his love and wants 2 explore his feelings. He says what she means 2 him!
