lyrics

I tried to open up your heart
but I couldn’t find it
up on a shelf inside a jar
as you lay down beside it
and pretend not to hide
but all the times denied
I wondered who you are

as I am looking further in
floating through your disguises
until the game is wearing thin
or you run out of surprises
I pretend not to notice
so instead I’m holding on
to this feeling that I need
I need to know what you are

you know me so show me
the secret key to open your heart
you know it’s true but don’t show it
and you have been an enigma to me from the start

I would tell you things have changed
but I never know how
I strike a match, ignite a flame
just to see you explode now
by now you should have discovered
there couldn’t be any other one but you to blame

you know me, so show me
the secret key to open your heart
you know it but don’t show it
you’ve been an enigma to me from the start
I can’t get through till you fall apart

to know you, to show you
the secret key to open your heart
you know me now so show me how
to find a way to open your heart
you know it but don’t show it
the secret key to open your heart
you know it’s true but don’t show it
and you have been an enigma to me from the start
