[AJ]
She keeps her secrets
In her eyes
She wraps the truth
Inside her lies
Just when I can't say
What she's done to me
She comes to me
And leads me back to paradise

She's so hard to hold
But I can't let go

[Chorus]
I'm a house of cards
in a hurricane
A reckless fire
In the pouring rain
She cuts me and the pain
Is all I wanna feel
She tears away just like a child
She drives me crazy
Drives me wild
But I'm helpless when she smiles

[Howie]
Oh when she smiles, she smiles

[Brian]
Maybe I'd fight if I could (maybe I'd fight it if I could)
It hurts so bad
But feels so good
She opens up just like
A rose to me
When she's close to me
Anything she'd ask me to
I would

It's out of control
But I can't let go

[Repeat Chorus]

When she looks at me
I get so weak

[Repeat Chorus]

    Gosh, the Backstreet Boys aren't that great, man. I think that this song is about how when the person you like looks you in the eyes, you feel really happy inside. Ok song.
