what have i got to lose lyrics – blessid union of souls

i started to write you a letter the other day
i didn’t know exactly what i was going to say
and at the last minute i threw it away
’cause i didn’t think you’d read it anyway

’cause see, i’m the kind of man who’s gl*ss is half full
but i’m a bit torn from the strings you pulled
and since i already felt a bit abused
i just thought to myself, i thought to myself

oh, what have i got to lose?
’cause i can’t fall much further down
and look what i’ve got to win
if you would only hear my heart

yesterday i actually tried calling
but that was after six days and six nights of stalling
and i thought about everything that we’ve been through
all the different places that we went to
i never thought we’d go there

but the times we hurt each other, sometimes we meant to
trying to make up with flowers that i sent you
but now i’m at the crossroads and it’s time to choose
and i guess i just figured, what the h*ll

oh, what have i got to lose
’cause i’ve already come this far, yes
and look what i’ve got to win
if you would only search my heart and see what’s deep inside

see, i don’t wanna go to sleep, ’cause i, i don’t want to dream
i always wake up with tears it seems
but i can’t blame it on you so it must be me
i’ll beg for forgiveness if that’s what i need to do

’cause i ain’t got nothing to lose, no
(what have i got to lose)
’cause i’ve lost the one thing missing from my life
but look what i’ve got to win
(look what i’ve got to win)
if only i can get you to hear my heart
and see what it’s saying to you

what have i got to lose, baby?
(what have i got to lose?)
when all i’ve lost is the everything that i need
and look what i’ve got to win
(look what i’ve got to win)
if you’ll only listen, listen, listen to my heart

(what have i got to lose?)
i ain’t got nothing to lose
(look what i’ve got to win)
listen, listen to my heart, yeah
i ain’t got nothing to lose
