I could have leaned in, then you'd lean in and I'd be the leader
I could have called you, then you'd get the message and you'd call me later
I could have told you, then you'd tell me that you felt the same
I could have been cool, but I guess I wasn't--I'm just lame
Link arms or join hands, put me in a trance
I won't be the first one for once in romance
Where you put me it's rough, on the edge here it's tough
Push me over or save me, choice easy enough
I would have tagged you, but you'd tag back before I got to base
I would have sat with you, but you would already have saved my place
I would have invited you, but I knew that you're a regular
You would have stood me up and I would have said, "Oh well, the hell with her!"
Just you make the move, I've got nothing to prove
I know we can win and that no one will lose
I hang up to dry, on this here clothesline
Fold me up or wear me just give me a try
I should have had you, didn't take me long to figure this out
It should have scared you, that I've done nothing but sit around
I should have, could have, would have been something, done something, followed
through But haven't you always wanted someone to take the first step toward you
I'm just swimming around, got this hook in my mouth
Reel me in and then later you throw me back out
Roll the dice just to see, take a gamble on me
Do yourself a favor--take one for my team
Say yes or say no, where you put me it's low
I feel like I'm drowning in your undertow
I want nothing else, I'm do-it-yourself
Till you buy me I'll just sit here on the shelf
