I see the things you do
Do you think I wander through half-blind?
I see the things you hide
The fear you have inside is nothing new
But I would never want to find out everything about you

Because I would never want to find out
What I thought wasn't true

Your mind is a place
I don't need to embrace
But what you've got on your heart
Is enough for me to start breaking through
And closer to you
Closer to you

I love you as you are
Near and not too far out of you
I love the way you walk
To hear it when you talk like you do

But I would never want to choose
What I like best about you

Because I would never want to spoil that mystery
With a clue

Your mind is a place
I don't need to embrace
But what you've got in your heart
Is enough for me to start
With enough holes in my soul
I don't need to rock and roll to stay in tune
And be open to you
Open to you

Oh the obviousness of all those Frustrating clues
They wander all around
Black and white, no sound, no improvements

But I see something like TV
With a smell and a choice

When I feel yours and my heart beating
With the wealth of the universe
Your mind is a place
I don't need to embrace
What you've got in your heart
Is enough for me to start
Making your happiness my own
Open up and let me show what I can do
When I am closer to you
Closer to you
