Now, you know that my heart is torn, and I don’t know what to do

(What to do, I don’t know what to do)

I’m a wreck inside, And I can’t hide how I feel about you

(About you, how I feel about you)

I want to say yes, but I just keep thinking about what I’ll leave behind

(What I’ll leave behind, baby, what I’m leaving behind)

And I can’t sleep anymore, or even think straight, with these thoughts in my mind

(In my mind, what’s in my mind)

 

One day, I’ll just let it out

It’ll fade away with a shout

How didn’t I see it before

I was lost until you opened the door

 

(Chorus)

Now, I try to hold on, but you let go

I’m a second too late, a moment too slow

(Just a dance with you, baby, just a dance with you)

And I just want to make things right between you and me, If I could do that, then you’d see

(How much I love you, how much I love you)

 

One of these times, I’ll figure out just what you’re trying to say

(One of these times, oh, what you’re trying to say)

And I really need you now, and I have to get you to stay

(I really need you, oh, I really need you)

I guess I ‘ve had my eyes ahead, but you were here all along

(My eyes, oh, here all along)

So, I hope I made the right choice and not just because she was gone

(She was gone, because she was gone)

 

Now I have a big choice to make

I’ll make it soon, for your sake

I’m not sure what to do

And I don’t want to ruin things with you

It’s a fight that I can’t win

And I’ll suffer for it, another sin

But darling please, give me one more chance

I can show you how I feel, just a dance

 

(Chorus)

Now, I try to hold on, but you let go

I’m a second too late, a moment too slow

(Just a dance with you, baby, just a dance with you)

And I just want to make things right between you and me, If I could do that, then you’d see

(How much I love you, how much I love you)

 

And darling I just want to prove myself to you!

We can leave all of this and start anew!

 

(Slower)

Now, I try to hold on, but you let go

I’m a second too late, a moment too slow

 

Just a dance with you, baby, just a dance with you

The moment too slow line is my favorite. This one is cooool. I was singing in my head while I was reading it.
