I should be brave with nothing to lose,
That's how I was until the day I met you,
Now I'm afraid that I don't know what to do,
A couple of things I've really got to tell you.

Dive off a cliff, jump from a plane,
All sound easier than what I've got to say,
Go for a swim, with sharks in the sea,
All sound easier than me telling it to you straight,

I've got nothing to lose...
I've got nothing to lose but you,
If I just say nothing, you'll never hear the truth,
I can't keep using the same dumb excuse
Cuz, I've got nothing to lose,
I've got nothing to lose
But you...

To get you to laugh, to get you to smile,
To get you to tell the world that you're on my side,
Make me a star at least in your eyes,
Lets take on the world, but first,
I got to make you mine,

Dive off a cliff, jump from a plane,
All sound easier than what I've got to say,
Go for a swim, with sharks in the sea,
All sound easier than me telling it to your face.

I've got nothing to lose...
I've got nothing to lose but you,
If I just say nothing, you'll never hear the truth,
I can't keep using the same dumb excuse
Cuz, I've got nothing to lose,
I've got nothing to lose
But you...

Though the words ain't coming out,
But tonight, it's going down...
I should be brave, with nothing to lose,
That's how I was until the day I met you,

I've got nothing to lose...
I've got nothing to lose but you,
If I just say nothing, you'll never hear the truth,
I can't keep using the same dumb excuse
Cuz, I've got nothing to lose,
I've got nothing to lose
But you...

Though the words ain't coming out,
But tonight, it's going down...
I've got nothing to lose
I've got nothing to lose but you.

    He's in love with a girl and really wants to tell her, but he doesn't have the nerve to do so. He's just trying to get the guts to tell her :)
