When Words Fail – Lost lyrics

I don't know what this is
Could you tell me what this means?
I don't like where this is going
Nothing's easy as it seems
And every time you smile at me,
You reel me closer in
There is something I'm now realizing
Something's about to begin

I'm lost and I can't find my way out
There's two paths I could take
Each one leads to happiness,
But each has obstacles in the way
It's like you're playing tug of war
My heart is what's at stake
Each side's pulling way too hard
I fear that I might break

I don't know the right decision
Could someone tell me what to do?
I don't like this tension building
There is so much I could lose
And every time I look in your eyes,
You draw me closer to you
I've now come to a realization
But still I don't know what to do


This is something I can't do on my own
I need someone to step in
There is something I need you to tell me
I need to know if I'm
