Secret eyes follow you around the room
They try to hide their glances in the darkness
How could there be anyone as beautiful as you?
Who couldn't help but want you?

I'm not the only one who wants to get next to you
Bet I'm not the only one who's ever told you
How much they wanted to be your only one
They all wanted you, wanted to be holding you now
Holding you, touching you, feeling you

Will it be me at the end of the night?
Will I be, will I be the lucky one who wins you?
Leavin' the place just to dream of your embrace
Who wouldn't want to be in my place?

I'm not the only one who wants to get next to you
Bet I'm not the only one who's ever told you
How much they wanted to be your only one
They all wanted you, you'll break every heart before the night is through
Every heart but the one that goes with you

There you are, moving across the floor
Knowing that all those arms are waiting and wanting
Longing to reach for you
You don't care, you could have anyone you choose

I'm not the (I'm not the) only one who wants to get next to you
Bet I'm not the only one who's ever told you
How much they wanted to be your only one
They all wanted you, wanted to be holding you now
Holding you, touching you, feeling you

I wanna get next to you
Bet I'm not the only one who's ever told you
How much they wanted to be your only one
They all wanted you ... [fade out]
