Don't Wanna Lose You

Sometimes it's hard to make things clear, I know when to face the truth
And I know when the moment is here
I'll open my heart and show you inside, my love has no pride
I feel with you, I've got nothing to hide so open your eyes and see who I am
And not who you want for me to be I am only myself, myself

I don't wanna lose you now, we're gonna get through somehow
I don't wanna lose you now forever
Baby I finally found the courage to stand my ground
But if you want me, I'll be around forever

We all make mistakes, we all lose our way
But we stood the test of time and I hope that's the way it will stay
It's all up to you to tell me to go 'cause it won't be me to walk away
When you're all that I know and I know that

I don't wanna lose you now, we're gonna get through somehow
I don't wanna lose you now forever, never
Baby I finally found the courage to stand my ground
But if you want me, I'll be around forever, forever, yea yea

I don't wanna lose you, lose you now, we're gonna get through somehow
I don't wanna lose you now, I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
