i’ve tried
in vain to open your eyes
to behold
unfolding destiny

i’ve cried
the atmosphere is full of my sighs
i’ve been bold
it took its toll on me

just when
i felt finally free
you put the rug
back under my feet

now it seems
it seems you’re starting to see
the gold
the gold in me

one snag unravels us all
it hurt so bad,
but darlin, it’s over
wouldn’t you rather
rise up and walk?
wipe down your slate;
pick up your chalk
pick up your chalk


tell me how
how am i supposed to read
the reason
you’re opening up to me?

i am so
far over these pendulum swings
just let me fall
please just let me be

one snag unravels us all
it hurt so bad,
but darlin, it’s over
wouldn’t you rather
rise up and walk?
wipe down your slate;
pick up your chalk
pick up your chalk
