Lyrics

I can be the one you always turn to,
I can be the one who really knows,
How to show you love and understanding,
'Cos I've been watching from the side,
As your heart's been broken,
Now it's time to give this girl a chance...

Friends since we were young
Growing up together, but apart
I've been the one,
Lending you a shoulder to cry on...
But now the choice is clear...

I can be the one you always turn to,
I can be the one who really knows,
How to show you love and understanding,
'Cos I've been watching from the side,
As your heart's been broken,
Now it's time to give this girl a chance...

I've tried to show you,
What you've not seen, but you're blind...to me
How many times,
Have I listened to your latest heartbreak?
Well now listen to me...

I can be the one you always turn to,
I can be the one who really knows,
How to show you love and understanding,
'Cos I've been watching from the side,
As your heart's been broken,
Now it's time to give this girl a chance...

Some people take a whole lifetime to figure out,
What they need stands right in front of them, yeah
Please don't let that be the story of you and I...
I'm here....come hold me, tonight

I need to say,
Exactly how I feel 'bout you now...
I cannot wait,
For a single minute more to be close...to you
It's now or never 'cos...

I can be the one you always turn to,
I can be the one who really knows,
How to show you love and understanding,
'Cos I've been watching from the side,
As your heart's been broken,
Now it's time to give this girl a chance...
