I lay all the traps out
But you just set 'em free
Lock the door and hide yourself
You can't get ride of me
One little moment just to be with you
You're everything I think about
You're all I say and do

I can't go much further
But I can't walk away
If I ask you this question
What will I say?

What's it gonna take to win your heart
What's it gonna take right from the start
Tell me, am I just wasting my time?
Give it to me straight-lay on the line
Tell me all I need to make you mine
What's it gonna take, boy
Am I the one for you?

Trying hard to win you
But I'm losing every game
In spite of all my hopes and dreams
The problem's still the same
Each and every night I pray for you
You're everything I think about
You're all I say and do

I want you to want me
But I won't call your hand
If I knoew what you're feeling
Then I'd understand

What's it gonna take to win your heart
What's it gonna take right from the start
Tell me, am I just wasting my time?
Give it to me straight-lay on the line
Tell me all I need to make you mine
What's it gonna take, boy
Am I the one for you?

Knock on your door a thousand times
Practiced my moves, rehearsed all my lines
You shut me out, a cold-hearted thing
But it ain't over till the fat lady sings

Now I'm looking so good, how can you resist me
A week from now you'll be sorry that you missed me
For cryin' out loud and for goodness sake
Tell me now boy, what's it gonna take?
What's it gonna take? What's it gonna take?

What's it gonna take to win your heart
What's it gonna take right from the start
Tell me, am I just wasting my time?
Give it to me straight-lay on the line
Tell me all I need to make you mine
What's it gonna take, boy
Am I the one for you?
