Lyrics

I wish that I could save you
I wish that I knew how to save myself
I wish I could replace you
But there can never be nobody else

Just two hearts, beat in time
Love has no reason and it has no rhyme
I wish that I could keep it in tonight

Cuz if I can't have you
There's just no way that I'll forgive myself
I'll pay all my dues
Anything to make you change your mind
If I can't have you, I'll regret it the rest of my life
I'm drowning with you on my mind
I've got nothing to lose, if I can't have you

Now it’s make or break it
I'm picking up the pieces on my own
You've got me feeling naked
With nothing but a bleeding heart exposed

Just two hearts, beat in time
Love has no reason and it has no rhyme
I wish that I could keep it in tonight

Cuz if I can't have you
There's just no way that I'll forgive myself
I'll pay all my dues
Anything to make you change your mind
If I can't have you, I'll regret it the rest of my life
I'm drowning with you on my mind
I've got nothing to lose, if I can't have you

No one in space or time, can't even hold
We’re all what we know, if I’d only known
If I could say one thing that hasn't been told
If it’s wrong then it’s wrong
We'll know that it's right

Cuz if I can't have you
There's just no way that I'll forgive myself
I'll pay all my dues
Anything to make you change your mind
If I can't have you, I'll regret it the rest of my life
I'm drowning with you on my mind
I've got nothing to lose, if I can't have you

I've got nothing to lose, if I can't have you
