Now tell me how you'd feel
If I told you that I 
Have feelings for you 
And would it be so wrong to say 
What's on my mind 
I'm sorry I have to
We were friends but with time 
What I feel inside for you has changed 
But I'd give up on love
If I thought that it was untrue for you

If I told you that
I wanted to see you 
And if I told you that
I'd beg to please you 
If I told you that
I'll always keep you 
What would you say
If I told you that

I know that we're just friends 
But what if I decide to bring something in 
I hope it won't offend the trust 
We have cause I don't want this to end
If you think that we'll lose what we have 
Then I'd just rather stay (rather stay) the same 
(I'd rather stay the same) 
'Cause I don't want to choose 
Between two of the most precious things to me 
(Tell me)

If I told you that
I wanted to see you 
And if I told you that
I'd beg to please you 
If I told you that
I'll always keep you 
What would you say
If I told you that

If we take this chance
And extend to each other romance 
I hope it would be 
The right thing for you and me

If I told you that
I wanted to see you 
And if I told you that
I'd beg to please you 
If I told you that
I'll always keep you 
What would you say
If I told you that

Would you be there for me 
Could you dare to hold me 
Will my feelings leave me 
Lonely if I told you

If I told you that
I wanted to see you 
And if I told you that
I'd beg to please you 
If I told you that
I'll always keep you 
What would you say
If I told you that
