Take a Risk

We hear the heart’s music loud and clear

It’s playing every second of every single year

Yet we’re standing here and just stealing a glance

Can we take a risk, and dance just one dance?

 

Staring at you, more than arm’s reach away

Overcome by feelings we’ve been afraid to betray

We’re not moving forward at this measured pace

Can we take a risk, and share just one embrace?

 

We’re still hopelessly lost, praying to be found

We’re standing here silent in a world of sound

All of this wasted time with waiting has beset

Can we take a risk, and sing just one duet?

 

We’re standing static yet our hearts are speeding

They’re racing and running, begging and pleading

They’re singing and chanting, soaring as doves

Can we take a risk, and share just one love?
