I've made up my mind,
Don't need to think it over,if
I'm wrong I am right,
Don't need to look no further,
This ain't lust,
I know this is love but

If I tell the world,
I'll never say enough,
Cause it was not said to you,
And thats exactly what I need to do,
If I'm in love with you

Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even If I knew my place
should i leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere

I'd build myself up,
And fly around in circles,
Wait then as my heart drops,
and my back begins to tingle
finally could this be it

Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even If I knew my place
should i leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere

Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even If I knew my place
should I leave it there?Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere

MODAL VERBS



Modals are special verbs which behave very irregularly in English.Here are some important differences:

1. Modal verbs do not take "-s" in the third person.

Examples:He can speak Chinese, She should be here by 9:00.

2. You use "not" to make modal verbs negative, even in Simple Present and Simple Past.

Examples:He should not be late, They might not come to the party.

3. Many modal verbs cannot be used in the past tenses or the future tenses.

Examples:He will can go with us. Not Correct:She musted study very hard. Not Correct

Common Modal Verbs: Can, Could,May,Might, Must, Ought to ,Shall ,Should, Will ,Would.
