This Is What It Takes Lyrics

I watch your troubled eyes as you rest
And I fall in love with every breath
Wonder if those eyes are really shut
And am I the one you're dreaming of
'Cause underneath the darkness
There's a light that is trying so hard to be seen
And I know this, cause I'm noticed,
A little bit shining through the seamsAnd if this is what it takes,
Then let me be the one to bear the pain
Oh if this is what it takes,
I'll break down these walls that are in our way
If this is what it takesYou keep on telling me I'm wasting time
But to call it wasting time, oh that's a crime
And you thinks it's crazy what I'm tryna do
Well baby I'm a fool for you
'Cause underneath the darkness
There's a light that is trying so hard to be seen
And I know this, cause I'm noticed
A little bit shining through it seamsAnd if this is what it takes,
Then let me be the one to bear the pain
Oh if this is what it takes,
I'll break down these walls that are in our way'Cause if you don't understand yet
Then I'll never let you forget
That you don't have to do this on your own
I'll be your shoulder to lean on
I'll be your right when you feel wrong
So come on take my hand we're moving onAnd if this is what it takes,
Then let me be the one to bear the pain
Oh and if this is what it takes,
I'll break down these walls, these walls that are in our way
If this is what it takes

Shawn Peter Raul Mendes (born August 8, 1998 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Since the release of his self-titled "The Shawn Mendes EP" and his debut single "Life of the Party", he has been gaining mainstream success as a singer-songwriter and touring artist.

Mendes was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and was raised in Pickering, a suburb of the city. He is the son of Karen, a real estate agent, and Manuel Mendes, a businessman. His father is of Portuguese descent (from a family from Lagos), while his mother is English.

He first started posting cover videos on the popular social video app Vine in 2013 and picked up millions of views and followers in a matter of months, becoming well known for his six-second snippets of renditions of many popular songs. Artist manager Andrew Gertler discovered Mendes online in January 2014, bringing him to Island Records where he eventually signed and released his first single "Life of the Party" in June 2014. He is the youngest artist to debut in the top 25 with a debut song on the Billboard Hot 100, making to number 24 for the week ending July 12, 2014 at 15 years, 11 months and 4 days of age.

Prior to his signing, Mendes toured as a member of the MagCon Tour alongside other young artists and social media sensations such as Nash Grier, Cameron Dallas, Jack & Jack, and more. Mendes was also on a nationwide tour with Austin Mahone as an opening act and released his debut major label EP in July, with a debut album due out later in 2014. He won the Teen Choice award in 2014 for Webstar in Music. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
