"You've Got to Show" as written by and Emily Ann Saliers....
Yes it's true I've gotten very moody over you
Don't think I don't sense your caution way across the room
Or across the phone lines, big black ocean, conversation brief
We can't find a clear connection and I can't get relief

Why don't we both agree?
We're both afraid and too afraid to say
If I say count to three and move toward me
Would you meet me half the way? (Would you meet me)

There are a thousand things about me
I want only you to know
But I can't go there alone
You've got to show

While you occupy me, I command my dreams each day
To bring you in me even thinly as the mornin' chases you away
I half believe if I just picture us we will come true
Wishful thinkin' or my hope's sinkin' half depends on you

Why don't we both agree?
We're both afraid and too afraid to say
If I said count to three and move toward me
Would you meet me half the way? (Would you meet me)

There are a thousand things about me
I want only you to know
But I can't go there alone
You've got to show me

Show me you are fully alive
If you want to fly you take this dive
If you want to kiss, kiss for real
I'll give you back everything you feel

Drive in space that peaceful place, you'd be my secret sharer
Front and back and all around the thin margin of error
I move too fast or move too slow or somewhere in between
But navigate your perfect distance, your getaway is clean

Why don't we both agree?
That we're both afraid and too afraid to say
If I say count to three and move toward me
Would you meet me half the way?

'Cause there are a thousand things about me
I want only you to know
I want only you to know
I want only you to know
But I can't go there alone
You've got to show
