My Last Chance

What is a girl supposed to do
When they see the one they love fall for someone else?
Does she keep her mouth shut and pray for the best
Or does she speak up and claim him for herself?
Does she nip the feelings in the bud
Before it blossoms into something more serious?
Or does she sit alone at home at night
Wondering if she stood a chance, forever being curious?
I wish I could tell you how I feel
Before it's too late to let you know,
I just want you to understand what's inside
Before you fall in love and my chance goes.
But it's hard to find the words
To express the love I feel for you,
To describe how messed up I am inside
And how I don't know what to do.
I can't possibly explain the joy you bring
In the little things you do for me,
The little gifts you buy for no reason
The times when you inspire me to be whatever I want to be.
I can't explain the burning desire
I feel in the depths of my soul.
How can I explain that whatever I think
My thoughts of you are in total control.
Everything that I see in the outside world
And every little thing that I do,
Seems to start me off once again
And it weaves itself into you.
It's like I can't exist without you near
And every time you go I start dying,
And late at night while the world is asleep
I'm lying in bed wishing and crying.
I want you so bad it's tearing me apart
Churning me around, driving me insane,
And every little moment I share with you
I want to share all over again.
But what can I do now?
When you're about to devote yourself to another,
Why can't you open your eyes and see
That in your best friend lies an even better lover?
All I want from you right now
Is for you to say you understand,
To tell me you feel the same way
And that you will be my man.
I will cherish you like the King you are
And love you until the day I die,
I promise I will be forever faithful
And that I will never lie.
But I cannot pluck up the courage
To speak my heart and mind,
To open up to you this time
To save you from being blind.
I'm sure that when your horizons broaden
You'll see that I'm all that you need,
You'll love me as much as I love you
And that I am what you wish I would be.
I have to open up your eyes
This is my last chance to let you know,
I don't want you to love the wrong person
I don't want to let you go.
You know you don't belong with her
Just as you know I should be your girl,
It makes perfect sense to me
Because you are my world.
I just have to tell you
Tonight has to be the time,
The life will be so perfect
Because you will finally be mine.
