This song is Rodriguez reaching out to a woman asking her to be more forthcoming. She won't let him up the stairs to her apartment but she won't let him walk down and out the...
I'm only halfway up the stairs
Not up or down
I'm only halfway up the stairs
Since you let me down
So won't you tell me
Tell me please
What you're gonna do
'Cause you know I wouldn't be halfway with you

I don't want to seem impatient
And please don't think me fast
But we've got something going
And I don't want to let it pass
So won't you tell me,
Tell me please
What you're gonna do
'Cause you know I wouldn't be halfway with you

I don't want to seem impatient
And please don't think me fast
But we've got something going
And I don't want to let it pass
So won't you tell me,
Tell me please
What you're gonna do
'Cause you know I wouldn't be halfway with you

    General CommentIn The Album "Alive", which is an Live-Album from Rodriguez' Australian Tour in 1979, said Rodriguez, that this song was the very first song that he wrote. That means that Rodriguez wrote this song 1967 or before this year, because his first single was released 1967 (I'll Slip Away).
