  • Sitting here, on this lonely dock
    Watch the rain play on the ocean top
    All the things I feel I need to say
    I can't explain in any other way

    I need to be bold
    Need to jump in the cold water
    Need to grow older with a girl like you
    Finally see you are naturally
    The one to make it so easy
    When you show me the truth
    Yeah, I'd rather be with you
    Say you want the same thing too

    Now here's the sun, come to dry the rain
    Warm my shoulders and relieve my pain
    You're the one thing that I'm missing here
    With you beside me I no longer fear

    I need to be bold
    Need to jump in the cold water
    Need to grow older with a girl like you
    Finally see you are naturally
    The one to make it so easy
    When you show me the truth
    Yeah, I'd rather be with you
    Say you want the same thing too

    I could have saved so much time for us
    Had I seen the way to get to where I am today
    You waited on me for so long
    So now, listen to me say

    I need to be bold
    Need to jump in the cold water
    Need to grow older with a girl like you
    Finally see you are naturally
    The one to make it so easy
    When you show me the truth
    Yeah, I'd rather be with you
    Say you want the same thing too
    Say you feel the way I do Writer/s: JOSHUA RYAN RADIN
