I'm running out of ways to make you see
I want you to stay here beside me
I won't be ok and I won't pretend I am
So just tell me today and take my hand
Please take my hand
Please take my hand

Just say yes, just say there's nothing holding you back
It's not a test, nor a trick of the mind
Only love

It's so simple and you know it is
You know it is, yeah
We can't be to and fro like this
All our lives
You're the only way to me
The path is clear
What do I have to say to you
For Gods sake, dear
For Gods sake, dear
For Gods sake, dear
For Gods sake, dear
For Gods sake, dear

Just say yes, just say there's nothing holding you back
It's not a test, nor a trick of the mind
Only love

Just say yes, coz I'm aching and I know you are too
For the touch of your warm skin
As I breathe you in

I can feel your heart beat through my shirt
This was all I wanted, all I want
It's all I want
It's all I want
It's all I want
It's all I want

Just say yes, just say there's nothing holding you back
It's not a test, nor a trick of the mind
Only love

Just say yes, coz I'm aching and I know you are too
For the touch of your warm skin
As I breathe you in

    I think it's about an impossible relationship, one person is open to seeing the true feelings that are shared and is begging the other person to give into those feelings rather than fighting them and finding excuses/ways to hide from them and to stop keeping the other person at arms length.

    I believe this is a love song, about letting someone in and saying yes to love. You can do it. If you have another one you love dearly that is all you will need in tough times, through good or bad they are there for it all. Life is a journey and they will spend it with you. Believe in love!

    The true meaning of the lyrics:
    Two people who were in love for a real long time had to go separate ways for certain reasons after a point they both realized it was not possible for either of them to stay away from each other, the girl wants to get back but the understand the situation he knows in future they cannot be tigether, but the girl in love does not care. she just wants him... just want him to say yes just say there is nothing holding u back , its not a test not a trick of mind..its only love that forced them to get back ...

    Thanks

    or vice versa..both of you make sense..the meaning can be applied for both sexes, what's important is if the feeling is mutual and both sides want to hold back and unite, all they ever need to say is "YES"!
