Through the same again
I try to quench my need
I hope the time has not been wasted
Feeding this machine
I know you must be torn inside
Uncertain of my trust
Perhaps you doubt is justified
So stop me if you must
But don't forget, we came together
Willing and obliged
Can we stand another minute
Instinct so denied
This could be a moment
That so very much depends
Upon a brave decision
And the message that it sends

If you lift just a little, I'll pull down from the middle
Combine my dedication with your cooperation
Remove all hesitation with one slight levitation
If you lift just a little, I'll pull down from the middle
I believe
It's up to thee
So patiently
I'll wait and see

Sometimes I am uncertain
Of my boundaries
I have no way to determine
Just what this all means
But with a little indication
Telegraph your mind
We can make a combination
Switching into glide

If you lift just a little, I'll pull down from the middle
Combine my dedications with your cooperation
Remove all hesitations with one slight levitation
If you lift just a little, I'll pull down from the middle
I believe
It's up to thee
So patiently
I'll wait and see
