Baby you're so beautiful
And when I'm near you I can't breathe
A girl like you gets what she wants
When she wants it
You're so out of my league (out of my league)
I show you no emotion
Don't let you see what you're doin' to me
I imagine the two of us together
But I been livin' in reality

Fear of rejection, kept my love inside
But time is running out, so damn my
foolish pride

I don't care if you think I'm crazy (wahhh)
It doesn't matter if it turns out bad (I don't care)
I've got no fear of losin' you
You can't lose what you never had
Now I'm gonna confess that I love you (love you)
I been keepin' it inside (inside) feelin' I could die
Now if you turn away baby that's O.K
At least we'll have a moment before
You say good-bye
You can't lose what you never had

ohhh

Rules are made for breakin'
Nothin' ventured nothin' gained
I'll be no worse of than I am right now
And I might never get that chance again
baby

Fear of rejection, kept my love inside
Told my heart I didn't want you but I lied

I don't care if you think I'm crazy (I'm crazy)
It doesn't matter if it turns out bad (matter if it turns out bad)
I've got no fear of losin' you
You can't lose what you never had (Yeah)
Now I'm gonna confess that I love you (I love you)
I been keepin' it inside (inside) feelin' I could die (could die)
Now if you turn away baby that's O.K
At least we'll have a moment before
You say good-bye (before you say good-bye)

Here on the outside lookin' in (lookin' in)
Don't wanna stay dreamin' 'bout
What could have been
Need to hear you speak my name
Even if you shoot me down in flames

I don't care if you think I'm crazy (I don't care)
It doesn't matter if it turns out bad (if it turns out bad)
I've got no fear of losin' you
You can't lose what you never had
Now I'm gonna confess that I love you (that I love you)
I been keepin' it inside feelin' I could die (die)
Now if you turn away then that's O.K
At least we'll have a moment before
You say good-bye
You can't lose what you never had
You can't lose what you never had
(now)
You can't lose what you never had...
