Man that girl liked to keep us guessin’
Back in the day, when we were freshman
She tore my heart in two, when I heard when she was choosing you
Now, you treat her like a shadow you walk around
Wants to rise like the sun but you keep her down
I wanna be the one to make her see, the way love’s supposed to be

CHORUS:
She’s yours to lose
This time may the best man win
I refuse to take second place again
That’s her broken heart you’ve been walking on
If you think she won’t leave you got it all wrong
She’ll be the one to choose
She’s yours to lose

If life was a book, I’d flip back a few pages
Re-write the plot, so we could change places
I’d hold her in my arms, soul to soul, and heart to heart
But I’m here and she’s there, lying in your bed
Holding onto what’s left by one lonely thread
Looks like it’s starting to fray, pretty soon that girl’s gonna break away

CHORUS:
She’s yours to lose
This time may the best man win
I refuse to take second place again
That’s her broken heart you been walking on
If you think she won’t leave you got it all wrong
She’ll be the one to choose
She’s yours to lose

Well you’ve got your piece of heaven, but you don’t know what it’s worth
What I see inside her eyes, aint like nothing on this Earth

CHORUS
