What to do? I think I'm losing you.
Who knew you could be losing
who you never had at all?
All I think about these days
Are ways to hesitate and stall
To keep from falling over you,
So I can keep the status quo
You know, we're good friends
At least for now.
And I don't know about
Turning myself inside-out
And you finding out
How much I'm hiding inside of my soul.

So what you want is what I'm not
But what you need might be what I've got
And what I love is what you are
And what I want to know is what we've got in store

Oh oh oh, I've got to let you know
What I'm feeling tonight.
Oh, oh, oh, I've got to let you know
What I've got going on inside

My mind is racing,
Chasing dreams -
It seems I'm thinking myself crazy.
I think I'm building my own maze,
A haze of selfish praise I raise
To me alone, yet I'm to blame.
'Cause I've been dreaming 'bout
Places and faces I could have known
On my own but you know
That it's a human thing
To need someone to help you sing
And bring a chorus to your song

So what you want is what I'm not
But what you need might be what I've got
And what I love is what you are
And what I want to know is what we've got in store

Oh oh oh, I've got to let you know
What I'm feeling tonight.
Oh, oh, oh, I've got to let you know
What I've got going on inside

It seems I've been thinking
All this time
That I had it all figured out
'Cause I've been walking
And talking like I am the author
And the story's about me.
But no, I'm just an extra
In an epic comedy or tragedy,
Whichever you believe
And no, I'm not a hero -
No redeeming qualities in me
To set you free or give you what you need

So what you want is what I'm not
But what you need might be what I've got
And what I love is what you are
And what I want to know is what we've got in store

Oh oh oh, I've got to let you know
What I'm feeling tonight.
Oh, oh, oh, I've got to let you know
What I've got going on inside
