Somewhere in the back of my mind
Secretly I know you will find
Way amongst the blusher and glow
Deep beyond the things I don't show

Mystery's a beautiful thing
What a gift a woman can bring
Never let it out just like that
Let him slowly figure it out

How I can flower bloom
Just over a day?
And at night
You've got to let the water drain in

I didn't want to fall in love with you
I didn't want to know the things I knew
It wasn't until I look into the mirror
Denial

You were like a power of nature
Telepathic beautiful creature
Understanding all my weakness
Patient, loving, know when it reaches

Cynical and hurt was just me
You were never supposed to be
Part of what I would call amazing
It took so long to finally see

How I can flower bloom
Just over a day?
And at night
You've got to let the water drain in

I didn't want to fall in love with you
I didn't want to know the things I knew
It wasn't until I look into the mirror
Denial

I didn't want to fall in love with you
I didn't want to know the things I knew
It wasn't until I look into the mirror
Denial

I see the way the pain goes like open minds for us
No complicated barriers to hold us back

I didn't want to fall in love with you
I didn't want to know the things I knew
It wasn't until I look into the mirror
Denial

I didn't want to fall in love with you
I didn't want to know the things I knew
It wasn't until I look into the mirror
Denial

    I really like this song, I think it is quite explanatory, about a who knew she was falling in love with the wrong person, but she can't stop it, he knows exactly how to seduce her, it all happened to her so quickly she didn't have time tothink anything through

    P.S Bozo is right, there are a lot of mistakes

    Other possible rearrangements:

    "I see the way
    The wind blows like open minds
    For us no complicated barriers
    To hold us back"

    "I see the way the wind blows
    Like open minds
    For us no complicated barriers
    To hold us back"

    I am inclined to favour the last one, solves the pause I mentioned earlier and reads better, also compliant with 4 lines verse form.

    [Edit, the red X box didn't remove my comment :) ]

    I posted the lyrics some months ago, not sure if it was on this site, but who cares :).
    Also seeing other lyrics sites taking over the original posted lyrics and also correcting them wrong. Some sites have a part of the lyrics changed like this:

    "I see the way the pain goes like open minds for us
    No complicated barriers to hold us back"

    I don't hear that.

    It was in some older posts I saw before I posted my lyrics.
    I don't have the original booklet containing the lyrics, but I don't hear the words "pain goes", but "wind blows". I have reheard it at high volume several times.

    Because it is sung at speed and in rhythm of the song, thus neglecting the pause between the words "I see the way" and "the wind blows".

    Looking at sentence grammar, semantics and (free) proze verse form a bit I think it should be :

    I see the way,
    The wind blows
    Like open minds for us
    No complicated barriers
    To hold us back

    Makes a lot more sense to me :)

    A nice song I sometimes listen to, it gets me in a happy mood :)

    I posted the lyrics some months ago, not sure if it was on this site, but who cares :).
    Also seeing other lyrics sites taking over the original posted lyrics and also correcting them wrong. Some sites still have the chorus like this:

    "I see the way the pain goes like open minds for us
    No complicated barriers to hold us back"

    I don't hear that.

    I don't have the original CD with booklet containing the lyrics, but I don't hear the words "pain goes", but "wind blows".

    Because it is sung at speed and rhythm of the song, neglecting the pause between the words "I see the way" and "the wind blows".

    Looking at sentence grammar, semantics and (free) proze verse form a bit I think it should be :

    I see the way
    The wind blows
    Like open minds for us
    No complicated barriers
    To hold us back

    Makes a lot more sense to me :)

    My version of the lyrics:

    Somewhere in the back of my mind
    Secretly I know you will find
    Me amongst the blushing and glow
    Deep beyond the things I don't show

    Mystery's a beautiful thing
    What a gift a woman can bring
    Never let it out just like that
    Let him slowly figure it out

    How can a flower bloom
    Just over a day?
    And at night
    You gotta let the water drain in

    I didn't wanna fall in love with you
    I didn't wanna know the things I knew
    It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
    Denial

    You were like a power of nature
    Telepathic beautiful creature
    Understanding all of my weakness
    Patient, loving, knowing you'd reach it

    Cynical and hurt was just me
    You were never supposed to be
    Part of what I would call amazing
    Took so long to finally see

    How can a flower bloom
    Just over a day?
    And at night
    You gotta let the water drain in

    I didn't wanna fall in love with you
    I didn't wanna know the things I knew
    It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
    Denial

    I didn't wanna fall in love with you
    I didn't wanna know the things I knew
    It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
    Denial

    I see the way the wind blows
    Like open minds
    For us no complicated barriers
    To hold us back

    I didn't wanna fall in love with you
    I didn't wanna know the things I knew
    It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
    Denial

    I didn't wanna fall in love with you
    I didn't wanna know the things I knew
    It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
    Denial

    I didn't wanna fall in love with you
    I didn't wanna know the things I knew
    It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
    Denial

    I didn't wanna fall in love with you
    I didn't wanna know the things I knew
    It wasn't till I looked into the mirror
