LyricsEdit

Brian:
Hmm, yeah, yeah
Baby, please try to forgive me
Stay here don't put out the glow
Hold me now don't bother if every minute it makes me weaker
You can save me from the man that I've become, oh yeah

BSB:
Lookin' back on the things I've done
I was tryin' to be someone
I played my part, kept you in the dark
Now let me show you the shape of my heart

A.J:
Sadness is beautiful loneliness that's tragical
So (with Kevin: help me) I can't win this war, oh no
(with Kevin: Touch me now don't bother)
If every (with Kevin: second it makes me weaker)
You can (with Howie and Kevin: save me) from the man (with Howie and Kevin: I've become)

BSB:
Lookin' back on the things I've done
I was tryin' to be someone
I played my part, kept you in the dark (A.J: you in the dark)
Now let me show you the shape of my heart

Nick:
I'm here with my confession
Got nothing to hide no more
I don't know where to start
But to show you the shape of my heart

BSB:
I'm lookin' back on things I've done
I never wanna play the same old part
I'll keep you in the dark (Brian: Keep you in the dark)
Now let me show you the shape of my heart

(A.J: Heart!) Lookin' back on the things I've done
I was tryin' to be someone (Brian: Tryin’ to be someone)
I played my part, kept you in the dark
Now let me show you the shape of my heart (Nick: Now let me show you the true shape of my heart)

Lookin' back on the things I've done
I was tryin' to be someone
I played my part, kept you in the dark
Now let me show you the shape of....

A.J:
Show you the shape of my heart
