Lyrics

Here and now, lost in this moment
All I see is you.
Here and now, from across the crowd
I wonder if you see me too.

Yeah, I know its crazy,
But I'm thinking maybe
You and I could be together tonight.
The music is playing,
My mind is racing,
But words just wont come out.

'Cause I don't know what to say
When you look my way.
There's a million things that I can't explain.
I'm alive 'cause I try to fight
This feeling inside but it's killin' me, killin' me.
If what they say is true,
I will never find someone better than you.
So here and now I'll try.

Here and now, I can't seem to ask
For your hand on the dance floor.
Here and now, my heart beats loud
All I want from you is more.

Yeah, I know we could be.
I think we should be.
The way you move's got me mesmerized.
Every time I pass you
I try to ask you
But I just s-stutter again.


'Cause I don't know what to say
When you look my way.
There's a million things that I can't explain.
I'm alive 'cause I try to fight
This feeling inside but it's killin' me, killin' me.
If what they say is true,
I will never find someone better than you.
So here and now I'll try.


'Cause I don't know what to say
When you look my way.
There's a million things that I can't explain.
I'm alive 'cause I try to fight
This feeling inside but it's killin' me, killin' me.
If what they say is true,
I will never find someone better than you.
So here and now I'll try to tell you.

But I don't know what to do
When I look at you
There's a million words but I can't choose.
Paralyzed, I forgot my lines.
The feeling inside
Gets the best of me, best of me.
'Cause what they say is true,
I will never find someone better than you.
But here and now I gotta try.
