Ran into you yesterday
Memories rushed through my brain
It's starting to hit me
Now you're not with me
I realize I made a mistake
I thought that I needed some space
But I just let love go to waste
It's so crystal clear now
That I need you here now
I gotta get you back today

This time I want it all
This time I want it all
Showing you all the cards
Giving you all my heart
This time I'll take the chance
This time I'll be your man
I can be all you need
This time it's all of me

I hit the bar every night
Looking to score a good time
It's not like I planned it
Left empty handed
Cause I'm still alone in my mind
Now what will it take to feel right
Can I come see you tonight
Is there someone new now
What can I do now
Cause I need you back by my side

This time I want it all
This time I want it all
Showing you all the cards
Giving you all my heart
This time I'll take the chance
This time I'll be your man
I can be all you need
This time it's all of me

Last time I wasn't sure.
This time I will give you more
I'm more mature
I'll show you
Last time I didn't know
I messed up let her let you go
I need you, don't say no

Laying alone in this room
All that is missing is you
Pick up the phone
Wont you come home

This time I want it all
This time I want it all
I'm showing you all the cards
Giving you all my heart
This time I'll take the chance
This time I'll be your man
I can be all you need
This time it's all of me
All of me

    In life we say this particular line been there done that but even in your heart you may regret it but you or a matter of fact all of us will want another chance to correct things and when we get that chance we will give it all what we have just for it not to mess up

    I believe this time means another opportunity or chance to make things right. He had a good woman who was more than likely giving 100 percent, and was exactly what he needed, but instead of doing right by her, he looked elsewhere, looked over what he had, and didnt give her 100 percent. So this time is the time to stand up and be the man he needs to be for her and love her unconditionally and be all in to his relationship. Even though he might have been with other women, the satisfaction they give is temporary and can only stimulate his body, not his mind. But in his woman he had all that and more and he realizes that so in these lyrics he's crying out for another chance to be blessed with her in his life. He wants her back and willing to do anything to get her back. He doesnt want to lose the love of his life. It's that simple.
