His laugh you’d die for, his laugh you’d die for
The kind that colors the sky
Heart intangible, slips away faster
Than dandelion fluff in the sunlight
And he’s got swirls of passion in his eyes
Uncovering the dreams he dreams at night
As much and hard as he tries to hide
I can see right through
See right through

His voice you’d melt for, he says my name like
I’d fade away somehow if he’s too loud
What I would give for me to get my feet
Back on the ground, head off the clouds
I laugh at how we’re polar opposites
I read him like a book and he’s a clueless little kid
Doesn’t know that I’d stop time and space
Just to make him smile
Make him smile

Oh, why can’t we for once
Say what we want, say what we feel?
Oh, why can’t you for once
Disregard the world and run to what you know is real?
Take a chance with me
Take a chance with me

Ooh
Ooh

His kiss you’d kill for, just one and you’re done for
Electricity surgin’ in the air
He drives me crazy, it’s so beyond me
How he’d look me dead in the eye and stay unaware
That I’m hopelessly captivated
By a boy who thinks love’s overrated
How did I get myself in this arrangement?
It baffles me too, baffles me too

Oh, why can’t we for once
Say what we want, say what we feel?
Oh, why can’t you for once
Disregard the world and run to what you know is real?

In the end, we only regret
The chances we didn’t take
I’ll be your safety net
So why not raise the stakes?
I can hear your heart from across the room
Pulsin’ through my veins, I know you need this too
Lie to me all you please
I can see right through
See right through

Oh, why can’t we for once
Say what we want, say what we feel?
Oh, why can’t you for once
Disregard the world and run to what you know is real?
Oh, why can’t we for once
Say what we want, say what we feel?
Oh, why can’t you for once
Disregard the world and run to what you know is real?
Take a chance with me
Take a chance with me

The song tells the story of a girl’s infatuation with a boy who seems to be holding back from expressing his feelings towards her. The lyrics depict the boy as someone who is passionate, dreamy-eyed, and with a captivating voice and kiss. Despite the girl’s strong feelings towards him, the boy seems unaware of her interest and remains clueless about love. The chorus of the song invites the boy to take a chance and pursue a relationship with her, even if it means disregarding societal norms and expectations.

Niki emphasizes the importance of taking risks in life and not regretting missed opportunities. She offers herself as a safety net for the boy, assuring him that he won’t get hurt if he decides to take a chance with her. The repeated line “I can see right through” suggests that the singer is able to see the boy’s true feelings and desires, even if he’s not expressing them openly.

Overall, the song encourages listeners to be bold and take risks in matters of the heart and to cherish the moments of connection and passion with someone special.

Will I ever be bold to take the risks in my relationship?

Well, I hope one day I have the spirit to finally be bold and take every risk in it.
