"Inside," Jordan Knight

Thursday, May 12, 2011


I'd been searching the internetz for the lyrics to this lovely song but didn't find anything, so I went ahead and did the most logical thing I could think of, and that was to transcribe it myself!

(I used to do this all the time when I had a Nick Carter fan site on GeoCities back in the late '90s, so I'm a pro.)

did I give you the impression
that it was over between you and me?
'cause I'm feeling the rejection
but you're not gonna make me leave, no

girl, you're hiding your emotions
but I know your vulnerabilities
would you let me pull you closer,
let me be the man you need

[chorus]
baby, show me what you're feeling
baby, please let down your guard
if you take that chance
if you let me in
girl, I'll take care of your heart

'cause I wanna give you my love
and I wanna give you my mind
girl, you're the only one I want in my life
and I wanna give you my heart
baby, I'm gonna make it right
if you let me get inside

girl, I'm gonna give my all
I'm never gonna leave your side
no, you won't have to worry this time
'cause I wanna give you my heart
baby, I'm gonna make it right
if you let me get inside

you tried to avoid another heartbreak
those past relationships were full of pain
and you don't want no disappointment
so you'd rather play it safe
but I'm not like the other guys that you've been with before
comin' in and out your life like a revolving door
said I'm here to stay, girl
so don't be afraid to
let me near your heart

[chorus]
baby, show me what you're feeling
baby, please let down your guard
if you take that chance
if you let me in
girl, I'll take care of your heart

'cause I wanna give you my love
and I wanna give you my mind
girl, you're the only one I want in my life
and I wanna give you my heart
baby, I'm gonna make it right
if you let me get inside

girl, I'm gonna give my all
I'm never gonna leave your side
no, you won't have to worry this time
'cause I wanna give you my heart
baby, I'm gonna make it right
if you let me get inside

[bridge]
put away your shield
take down your walls
the complicated thing that should be simple (or is it you complicate the thing that should be simple?)
but you're wasting time
'cause I want you now
baby let me inside

'cause I wanna give you my love
and I wanna give you my mind
girl, you're the only one I want in my life
and I wanna give you my heart
baby, I'm gonna make it right
if you let me get inside

girl, I'm gonna give my all
I'm never gonna leave your side
no, you won't have to worry this time
'cause I wanna give you my heart
baby, I'm gonna make it right
if you let me get inside

baby, show me what you're feeling
baby, please let down your guard
if you take that chance
if you let me in
girl, I'll take care of your heart

There are a few lines I'm uncertain about, so if you spot a mistake, please let me know. Hope this helps the one or two people out there who may want to know what the heck Jordan Knight is singing.

I just listened to the clearer 90-second iTunes snippet of this song and the piano sounds incredible on this. Delicious.
