Lyrics:

Verse 1:
You make it hard to breathe.
It's as if I'm suffocating.
And when you're next to me,
I can feel your heart beat through my skin.
It makes me sad to think this could all be for nothing.
I wish there was a way, a way for you to see inside me.
I've never felt this way, about anyone or anything. Tell me...

Chorus:
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?
But if I can't make you want me, what do I have to do?

Verse 2:
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 is a part of me that never made me proud.
Well right now I think I would try anything.
Anything at all to keep you satisfied.
God I hope you see what losing you would do to me.
All I want is one more chance...tell me...

Chorus:
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?
But if I can't make you want me, just tell me, tell me!

Bridge/Interlude:
How can I...how can I...how can I...

Chorus:
What do I have to do, to make you want me?
What do I have to do, to make you understand?
What do I have to do, to make you love me?
And if I can't make you love me, just tell me,
What do I have to do...to forget about you?
