Tip The Balance

Written by John Jackson and Dave Sieracki 

Staring out at the sky

Wondering if you even recognize you can mesmerize

And keep a man holding on

So I’m keeping my head held high

Even when you’ve held me hostage in the friend zone

I’ll search until I make my great escape


What more can I do?  What more can I say? (To gain acceptance, to break your silence)

How far must I go to open your heart? (To end the distance and tip the balance)


Looking up at dark clouds

They keep looming over me so ominously

Still I hope they’ll pass me by

Yes, I’m trying not to read the signs

They’d tell me that loving you is a hopeless case

Denied, but not ready to give up


I need more strength to tear down these walls (Your reluctance, your resistance)

I can’t find the key to unlock your heart (I need some guidance to tip the balance)


They always say that patience is a virtue, but I’ve learned

What you take too long to know can really hurt you


I’m down, but I’m not out for the count


If I walked away, would you feel a twinge of regret or even doubt?

Could that lead to love?

Is that the way to your love?


Done all I can do, said all I can say(To gain acceptance, to break your silence)

Gone as far as I can to open your heart (To end the distance and tip the balance)

It’s all up to you to take the next step (Need your assistance)

And tip the balance to love
