You're beautiful but won't let me touch you
You're brilliant but won't speak your mind
You're everything a man could ever ask for
If a man would want to lose his mind
Resplendent as the heart of the sunrise
Your radiating heart divines
I only want to feel your presence
And know you want to be in mine

What do we have to do for each other
What do we have to say to be real now
Even if you can't say how you feel
There has to be some way to be real now

You're honest but won't say how you feel no
You're waiting on a new lifetime
Where everything could fall into place now
I'm falling through a howling mine
I know that I've been jealous and petty
There's a darkness pulling down my soul
If you could only see you the way I do
In dreams, well it could make us whole
Even if I can't say how I feel

There has to be some way to be real now
Each waking night, each word requite
I live to know what's in your soul
If you could only tell me so I already know
Even if we can't say how we feel
There has to be some way to be real now
