Uhhh, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Would you spare a minute?
Give me a single chance
To look in your eyes
Let me hold your hands
I want to get close enough,
To read you
Understand you
Open up your heart
Open up your mind
Nobody needs another stalker in your life
I'm only here to help you learn to love me,
To know me

CHORUS
I need a hook so you won't be the one that got away
I need a look that stunns ya, makes you wanna stay.
Don't wanna speak in case it comes out wrong
Don't wanna blink coz in a second you could be gone
I need a twist to help me turn, turn this story round.
I need a bridge to cross this dangerous ground
Meet me in the middle like I want you too.
I gotta find your heart to shoot my arrow through

Did ya see me staring
You caught my eye
Don't turn around
Don't walk away
The night is young, can we get together?
Got so many questions
Feelings I can't explain
We're worlds apart
I don't even know your name
I'm longing to give you my heart

I need a hook so you won't be the one that got away
I need a look that stunns ya, makes you wanna stay.
Don't wanna speak in case it comes out wrong
Don't wanna blink coz in a second you could be gone
I need a twist to help me turn, turn this story round.
I need a bridge to cross this dangerous ground
Meet me in the middle like I want ya to.
I gotta find your heart to shoot my arrow through

Turn around, don't evaporate
Like you never came
Turn around don't be a ghost
Forever never there to haunt me.
Sliding doors.
They aren't just on trains
We're alone on a platform in the rain
There's a chance
And it won't come again
Turn around your whole life has changed

I need a hook so you won't be the one that got away
I need a look that stunns ya, makes you wanna stay.
Don't wanna speak in case it comes out wrong
Don't wanna blink coz in a second you could be gone
I need a twist to help me turn, turn this story round.
I need a bridge to cross this dangerous ground
Meet me in the middle like I want ya to.
I gotta find your heart to shoot my arrow through
