I don’t know how to make you understand
Just how I long to hold you and take you by the hand,
And I don’t know just how to make you see
The feelings that I feel for you when you’re standing close to me.
But girl, I’m going to do the best I can
To try and make you see me as your man.
‘Cause I can’t go through another sleepless night
Just wondering where you might be and who is by your side,
And I can’t go through this life now on my own.
I need to have you here with me so I won’t be alone.
I’m sorry, girl, but I’ve just got to try.
What would I do without you in my life?
I don’t know!
I don’t know just what it’s going to take
To make you see that loving me is not some big mistake,
And I don’t know just how I can break through
The walls you’ve built around your heart so I can get to you.
But girl, you know that I have just begun
To try to make you see that I’m the one.
