Song Lyrics - If You're Willing

Updated on October 15, 2011

Are you going to give me a chance
Or are you going to walk on by?
Are you going to let me into your life
Or would you rather go home and cry?

I’ve been watching you for years it seems
I always hope to see you on the elevator
You smiled at me a couple of times
But then my hopes said, “See you later”

If you’re willing
And wipe your fears away
I can change your life
If you’re willing
And wipe your tears away
You can change my life

I look at your finger just to be sure
Sometimes your eyes linger as you pass
But then you catch yourself like girls do
They never let their stares last

I just walked through your door
And I might not be here long
But I’m hoping a beautiful smile
Is telling me I’m not wrong

If you’re willing
And put your pride away
I’ll be the dream you never had
If you’re ready
And decide today’s the day
We'll have fun being bad

People act so cool
Wearing shades
Pretending not to care
I hope you’re not like that
Maybe you want a new man
Let’s let love take us there

If you’re willing
And forget your past
I’ll be the love you never had
If you’re ready
And decide to come my way
You’ll forget how you were sad

      Uh, huh, ain't goin' there--y'all think you're easy to figure out? Hah - go figure! Truly, this is a great piece for either of the sexes--depends on personality!

      @Teylina - I'm glad this reminded you of happy times. It's kind of a guy throwing it out there you know? It's time we stopped looking and wondering and start to get to know each other.... but women are so hard to figure sometimes....
