Oh, I don't know what to do, I can't stop wanting you
I'm in love, in love, with my best friend
It's tearing me apart, 'cause he has my heart
Oh, I'm in love, in love, with my best friend

[Verse 1]
I've been wanting you for may lifetimes now
And I'm so afraid to tell you, how I really feel
You have been there for me, I was 13 you were 14
Best friends for years, where do I go from here?
Oh Lord

(Can't stop the way that I feel
Every time I see you, I lose control, just can't let it go, oh no)

(A kiss from you ooh, how does it feel
Oh I wonder, I'm so close to you, but I wanna get next to you)


[Verse 2]
When we're out together, everybody smiles at us, 'cause they think that you're my man
So I hold your hand, like you're my man
I keep hoping that you'll notice me, and maybe one day you and I can be together, more than just friends

(I can't hide the way that I feel
Every time I see you, I lose control, I can't let it go, no-no)

(Kissing you just won't be enough
I need all of you, I wish you wanted me, like I want you)


If you could only understand the things that he does for me
Beautiful, wonderful, gorgeous and simplicity
He describes all the things that love is about, for me
And I've got to have him, yes I want him

[Lead guitar solo w/ lead singer ad lib]
