Here you come, walking my way
So much inside me
I wanna say, I've been holding on
For the longest, longest time

And I finally got the nerve
To tell you how I feel about you, the nerve
I can't live without you
The nerve to tell you what's been on my mind for a lifetime

And I finally got the nerve
I found the words to say, I've got the nerve
Can't wait another day, I've got the nerve
Don't wanna lose it this time

I'm trying to make
Tryin' to make a connection
But I'm afraid that there might be rejection on your part
It would break my heart in a million pieces

Can't go through it
(Through it)
Another day
I gotta let you know, I feel this way about you, baby
I dream about you in my life

And I finally got the nerve
To tell you how I feel about you, the nerve
I can't live without you, the nerve
I got the nerve to tell you what's been on my mind for a lifetime

When you walk by, my heart skips a beat
I contemplate the thought of you and me
I get weak for you
I can't get you off of my mind

I know I got to
(Got to)
Got to keep it real
'Cause you know how, you know how I feel
I'm wanting you and I'm needing you every day

And I finally got the nerve
To tell you how I feel about you, the nerve
I've got the nerve, the nerve
I've got the nerve to tell you what's been on my mind for a lifetime

And I finally got the nerve
To tell you how I feel about you, the nerve
I can't wait another day, I got the nerve
Don't wanna lose it, don't wanna lose it this time
