All You Gotta Do

(Verse 1)
I can feel myself falling apart.
I can feel my mind going too far.
I can feel my world crushing my heart.
I can feel you slowly leaving a scar.

(Chorus 1)
All I know is that I don’t want to ruin this.
I want to make sure I don’t mess this up if,
It could be something that we never expected.
Or could this be exactly what I’ve suspected,
All along, something that will make my heart break.
Please don’t let this be a mistake that you make.
Cuz I have high hopes that don’t want to fall.
So if you do anything at all, don’t wait,
At all, cuz I don’t want you to be too late.
I want you to come right out and tell me today.
All you gotta do…is say.

(Verse 2)
I can tell that you’re slowly fading away.
I can tell that there’s some other story that could win.
I can tell that she gets another say,
In how many times you two break up and get back together again.

(Chorus 2)
All I know is that I don’t want to ruin this.
I want to make sure I don’t mess this up if,
It could be something that we never expected.
Or could this be exactly what I’ve suspected,
All along, something that will make my heart break.
Please don’t let this be a mistake that you make.
Cuz I have high hopes that don’t want to fall.
So if you do anything at all, don’t wait,
At all, cuz I don’t want you to be too late.
I want you to come right out and tell me today.
All you gotta do…is say…
…That all you know is that you don’t want to ruin this.
You want to make sure you don’t mess this up if,
It could be something that we never expected.
Or could this be exactly what you’ve suspected,
All along, something that will make your heart break.
Please don’t let this be a mistake that I make.
Cuz you have high hopes that don’t want to fall.
So if I do anything at all, don’t wait,
At all, cuz you don’t want me to be too late.
You want me to come right out and tell you today,
All I gotta do…is say.
Oh, all you gotta do…is say…

(Bridge)
…That there might be something here.
And I want to give this a try, if you want too.
And please don’t be afraid, there ain’t a damn thing to fear.
So don’t even bother to ask, if I want you.
Just please don’t get my hopes up anymore,
If you don’t plan to catch me.
And please don’t let me fall like never before,
If you don’t plan to catch me…

(Chorus 2)
All I know is that I don’t want to ruin this.
I want to make sure I don’t mess this up if,
It could be something that we never expected.
Or could this be exactly what I’ve suspected,
All along, something that will make my heart break.
Please don’t let this be a mistake that you make.
Cuz I have high hopes that don’t want to fall.
So if you do anything at all, don’t wait,
At all, cuz I don’t want you to be too late.
I want you to come right out and tell me today.
All you gotta do…is say..
…That all you know is that you don’t want to ruin this.
You want to make sure you don’t mess this up if,
It could be something that we never expected.
Or could this be exactly what you’ve suspected,
All along, something that will make your heart break.
Please don’t let this be a mistake that I make.
Cuz you have high hopes that don’t want to fall.
So if I do anything at all, don’t wait,
At all, cuz you don’t want me to be too late.
You want me to come right out and tell you today,
All I gotta do…is say.
Oh, all you gotta do…is say…

(Repeat Chorus 1 Once)
I can feel myself falling apart.
I can feel my mind going too far.
I can feel my world crushing my heart.
I can feel you slowly leaving a scar…

I commend for writing song lyrics. I tried once but I found it extremely difficult. This song reminds me a lot of the kind of music Taylor Swift writes. Beautiful and emotional lyrics. I've felt this way so often.
