  • Don't know much about your life.
    Don't know much about your world, but
    Don't want to be alone tonight,
    On this planet they call earth.

    You don't know about my past, and
    I don't have a future figured out.
    And maybe this is going too fast.
    And maybe it's not meant to last,

    But, what do you say to taking chances,
    What do you say to jumping off the edge?
    Never knowing if there's solid ground below
    Or a hand to hold, or hell to pay
    What do you say
    What do you say

    I just want to start again
    And maybe you could show me how to try
    And maybe you could take me in
    Somewhere underneath your skin?

    What do you say to taking chances
    What do you say to jumping off the edge?
    Never knowing if there's solid ground below
    Or a hand to hold, or hell to pay
    What do you say
    What do you say

    And I had my heart beaten down
    But I always come back for more, yeah
    There's nothing like love to pull you up
    When you're laying down on the floor there
    So talk to me, talk to me
    Like lovers do
    Yeah walk with me, walk with me
    Like lovers do
    Like lovers do

    What do you say to taking chances
    What do you say to jumping off the edge?
    Never knowing if there's solid ground below
    Or a hand to hold, or hell to pay
    What do you say
    What do you say

    Don't know much about your life
    And I don't know much about your world. Writer/s: David Stewart, Kara Dioguardi
