  • You make it hard to breathe
    It's as if I'm suffocating
    And when you're next to me
    I can feel your heartbeat through my skin
    It makes me sad to think
    This all could be for nothing
    I wish there was a way
    For you to see inside of me
    I've never felt this way
    About anyone or anything
    Tell me
    What do I have to do to make you happy?
    What do I have to do to make you understand?
    What do I have to do to make you want me?
    And, if I can't make you want me
    What do I have to do?

    I know exactly what you're thinking
    But I swear this time I will not let you down
    I'm not as selfish as I used to be
    That was a part of me that never made me proud
    Right now I think I would try anything
    Anything at all to keep you satisfied
    God I hope you see what loving you would do to me
    All I want is one more chance, so tell me...
    What do I have to do to make you love me? Writer/s: ANDY KUBISZEWSKI, CHRISTOPHER HALL, JAMES ERIC SELLERS, WALTER FLAKUS
