Lyrics I'M NOT IN SOME CORNER TONIGHT
WASTING MY TIME,
I'M NOT AT THE END OF THE BAR
OUT OF MY MIND.
I'VE BEEN DOWN ON MY LUCK FOR SURE,
BUT I'M NOT DOWN NO MORE,
IF YOU'LL OPEN THE DOOR
I'LL DO THE REST;
I'M NOT GONNA TELL YOU I'VE CHANGED,
WHAT WOULD THAT CHANGE.
I'M NOT GONNA TRY TO EXPLAIN
WHAT I CAN'T EXPLAIN.
I CAN'T CHANGE THE PAST IT'S TRUE,
THE FUTURE NOW DEPENDS ON YOU,
SO OPEN UP AND I'LL COME THROUGH,
I SWEAR I'LL PASS THE TEST.

JUST SAY YES,
JUST SAY YES,
JUST SAY YES,
AND I'LL SHOW YOU WHAT I'M MADE OF.

EVERY STRENGTH AND WEAKNESS I POSSESS,
TAKE A CHANCE ON ME.
YOU HAVE MY GUARANTEE I'LL BUILD MY WORLD
AROUND YOUR HAPPINESS.

I'M NOT GONNA OFFER EXCUSES,
I TREATED YOU BADLY.
GIVING UP WOULD ONLY BE USELESS,
'CAUSE I LOVE YOU MADLY.
I'M SORRY FOR THE THINGS I DID,
THE WAY I RAN AWAY AND HID,
SO IF YOU OPEN UP THE LID
I CAN GET IT OFF MY CHEST.

JUST SAY YES,
JUST SAY YES,
JUST SAY YES,
JUST SAY YES.

Lyrics I CAN'T SIT AND LISTEN TO YOU TALKING
LIKE YOU'RE TALKING TO A STRANGER
GIVING ME THE RUN AROUND.
I WOULD SOON PUT THE LOVE WE FOUND IN DANGER,
HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS
AND MAKE IT LAST FOREVER.
BUT EVERY TIME I TALK TO YOU
I FEEL LIKE I'M TALKING TO A STRANGER.

STARING OUT MY WINDOW
AT THE STREET BELOW,
I THINK I SEE YOU PASSING.
I WANT TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON
WHEN YOU'RE ALONE.
BUT I'M AFRAID OF ASKING,
I DON'T WANT TO SPEND ANOTHER NIGHT
WITHOUT YOU.
I CLOSE MY EYES
AND ALL I DO
IS THINK ABOUT YOU.
AND EVERY TIME I TALK TO YOU
I FEEL LIKE I'M TALKING TO A STRANGER.

WHAT YOU GONNA DO
IS REALLY UP TO YOU THIS TIME.
I THINK YOU'VE MADE IT CLEAR
THERE'S SOMETHING MISSING HERE.
I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT,
I CAN'T READ YOUR MIND.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE POLITE
AND ACT SO RIGHT
TO MAKE YOURSELF APPEALING,
I THINK I KNOW YOU WELL ENOUGH
TO SEE IT'S JUST TO COVER UP YOUR FEELINGS.
EVERYTHING BETWEEN US
SEEMS TO BE SO FORMAL
AND ALL I WANT TO DO
IS BRING IT BACK TO NORMAL.
BUT EVERYTIME I TALK TO YOU
I FEEL LIKE I'M TALKING TO A STRANGER.

EVERY TIME I TALK TO YOU
I FEEL LIKE I'M TALKING TO A STRANGER.
EVERY TIME I TALK TO YOU
I FEEL LIKE I'M TALKING TO A STRANGER,
TALKING TO A STRANGER.
