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?
