  • I wanna call you up
    Tell you how I feel
    But I might scare you away if
    I get too real
    So I won't text back
    For a couple of hours
    What I really wanna do is
    Bring you flowers

    I'm not gonna hold your hand
    Ask if you wanna dance
    I can not take you home, you know

    I just wanna give you everything
    Show you I'm a Southern gentleman
    All I wanna do is let you in
    But good guys, good guys never win
    I just wanna be the one you call
    Anything you need, anything at all
    All I wanna do is let you in
    But good guys, good guys never win

    When you stay out late
    And I don't hear back
    I always wonder where you've been but
    I don't ask
    You're the one I want
    I don't wanna share
    But when you talk about someone else
    I act like I don't care

    I'm not gonna hold your hand
    Ask if you wanna dance
    I can not take you home, you know

    I just wanna give you everything
    Show you I'm a Southern gentleman
    All I wanna do is let you in
    But good guys, good guys never win
    I just wanna be the one you call
    Anything you need, anything at all
    All I wanna do is let you in
    But good guys, good guys never win

    So I'm gonna play it cool
    'Til I know you want me too
    So I'm gonna play it cool
    'Til I know you want me to

    I just wanna give you everything
    Show you I'm a Southern gentleman
    All I wanna do is let you in
    But good guys, good guys never win
    I just wanna be the one you call
    Anything you need, anything at all
    All I wanna do is let you in
    But good guys, good guys never win

    So I'm gonna play it cool
    'Til I know you want me too

    So I'm gonna play it cool
    'Til I know you want me too
    So I'm gonna play it cool
    'Til I know you want me too Writer/s: Charles H. Priest, Henry Agincourt Allen, Ian Fitchuk, Jake Goss, Paul Klein, Sasha Yatchenko
