lyrics

I want to know your secrets
What lives under your skin?
Such a calm appearance
Show me cracks to gaze in

What lies in the distance you keep?
What do you hide underneath?

‘cause you paint with the same colours that I use
And you hold up a mirror
It leaves me confused
Do you know me?

Now your mask is fading
So close I want to touch
But I am mistaken
When I look for love

You say that your heart is mechanical
Not worth bleeding for

Still you paint with the same colours that I use
And you hold up a mirror
It leaves me confused

Don't I know you?
Don't I know you?
Under the surface I saw
the boy that you hide in the dark
Safe on his own

Still you paint with the same colours that I use
And you hold up a mirror
It leaves me confused
Don’t you know me?
