Can we break the silence that’s growing between us Or is it much too late? I thought I saw a glimmer in your eyes of the girl I knew And the secrets she thought she kept hidden from view

That only I have seen That only I have known Movie backdrop scenes projecting in my skull Things that only we’d remember That only we could know Or maybe you’d thought I’d never noticed how softly you’d walk Across the room when I was sleeping

Actors making exits were like continents drifting apart And there’s no time for chasing shadows in the dark Did I lose you in the spotlight Did I lose you in the sheets Did I hurt you without knowing with my clumsy feet

Places only I have seen That only I have known Movie backdrop scenes projecting in my skull Things that only we’d remember That only we could know Or maybe you’d thought I’d never noticed how softly you’d walk Across the room when I was sleeping

Diving down and finding doors inside Somewhere in this velvet heart of mine Secrets lie blinding eyes (ever dividing) Even a single word (I can see the distance closing) Maybe you thought…
