I wish, oh, I wish
that I could open up your heart.
I want to get to know you
but that’s the hardest part.
I know you from the outside,
your voice I recognize.
But the real you I’m looking for
is always in disguise.
Sometimes looking into your eyes
I can read what’s on your mind.
But then you turn and look away,
afraid of what I’ll find.
I want to know what makes you tick,
what makes you run away.
I’d like to understand you,
there just seems no easy way.
If I could find a way beyond the wall
I know you’re waiting there.
Searching just like I am.
The quest for love is never fair.
