How can I make you open your mind?
How can I make you unlock that heart?
How can I make you speak to me?

And when you open your heart
(I'm a little frightened of what's inside)
How strange to see what I have wanted for so long
And when I try to say what
I have been dying to say
You stop.. you sweat.. you shake your head

But all this could be..

How can I make you stand and listen?
How can I make you understand?
How can I make you talk to me?

And when I open my heart
(Do you think you could overcome your fear?)
How strange to risk what I have put off for so long
And when you clear your throat and
Bite your tongue again
You stop.. you sweat.. you shake your head

But all this could be..

Can't you put your feet down on one side or the other?
You can't write forever in a white board marker

Can you pull your two disparate halves back together?
You can't write forever in a white board marker

And all these times I've tried I can't pick up the pieces,
Are you in or are you out?

My cards are on the table and it's past time to call
You can't write forever in a white board marker

My heart is on the table and it's past time to call
You can't write forever in a white board marker
