I gotta know
If I give my heart to you,
And everything you say is true,
And everything you say you'll do, you'll do.
And I gotta know, if I bare my soul right here,
You'll never run or disappear,
You'll hold me till the hours turn to years.
And I gotta say, my heart has never been so sure,
You've mended every piece that tore,
And now my love's too strong to tear away.
So I gotta know, if you feel the same my dear,
Lets justify why we are here,
Say the words that I long to hear.

'cause I've been so strong for so long,
I've never needed anyone,
But my strength is wearing out my heart.
So I'm letting my guard down
'cause I feel like I've finally found somebody.
But I gotta know.

I gotta know
You'll still kiss away my tears,
Even if they make no sense, even if they put you on defense.
And I gotta know
Through the times when it gets rough,
That our love will be enough, and you'll never let it go.

'cause I've been so strong for so long,
I never needed anyone,
But my strength is wearing out my heart.
So I'm letting my guard down
'cause I feel like I've finally found somebody.
But I gotta know.

I gotta know, babe.
I need to hear you say,
I know only time will tell,
But I need to hear it anyway.
'cause now my love's too strong to tear away.

'cause I've been so strong for so long,
I never needed anyone,
But my strength is wearing out my heart.
So I'm letting my guard down
'cause I feel like I've finally found somebody.
But I gotta know.

I gotta know.
