I turn my head,
I can't shake the look you gave
And I'm as good as dead,
Cause all those eyes are all it takes
And all I want is you
So I pull away
All I do is sit and wait
And I might as well
Write the words right on my face
That all I want is you
Oh, is you

Because I've kept my heart under control
But lately, all this time has taken it's toll
Said I tried to, but I can't hold back what's deep in my soul
Oh, so darling, please forgive me if
I want you and you'll just have to know

And all my fears,
Creep and crawl across my skin
And these four walls,
Are after me and moving in
And all, all that I want to do, oh
Is give up, give in,
And let this one stay where it is
But I don't suppose I will

Because I've kept my heart under control
But lately, all this time has taken it's toll
Said I tried to, but I can't hold back what's deep in my soul
Oh, so darling, please forgive me if
I want you and you'll just have to know

And one of these days
I'm gonna sign myself away
I'll find the courage, and I'll find the grace
And I'm gonna know just what to say
Oh, and you'll call me up
When you want this love
Or when you've had enough
And you're giving it up

Because I've kept my heart under control
But lately, all this time has taken it's toll
Said I tried to, but I can't hold back what's deep in my soul
Oh, so darling, please forgive me if
I want you and you'll just have to know

I've kept my heart under control
[FADES]
