Every single time I see you I start to feel this way

Makes me wonder if I'm ever gonna feel this way again

There's a picture that's hanging in the back of my head

I see it over and over

I want to hold you and love you in my arms and then

I want to need you cause I need to be with you til the end

Then I hear myself reply you've got to hold it in

This time, tonight

If only I had the guts to feel this way

If only you'd look at me and want to stay

If only I'd take you in my arms and say

I won't go cause I need you

I sit here, waiting, wondering, hoping, that I'll make this right

Cause all I think about is your hands

Your face, and all these lonely nights

There's a feeling that's screaming in the back of my head

Saying over and over

I want to hole you and love you in my arms and then

I want to need you cause I need to be with you til the end

Then I hear myself reply she'll never let you in

This time, tonight

If only I have the guts to feel this way

If only you'd look at me and want to stay

If only I'd take you in my arms and say

I won't go cause I need you

Please don't go cause I need you now

I want to hear you say

It'll always be this way

We will be hand in hand for every night and every day

I want to scream and shout

Cause I'm losing any doubt

And all I care about is you and me and us and now

If only I had the guts to feel this way

If only you'd look at me and want to stay

If only I'd take you in my arms and say

I won't go cause I need you

Please don't go cause I need you now
