What does it mean, when you say that you're happy,
And I'm the reason you wake up and smile?
You're telling me things that make you feel sappy,
Because you just haven't loved for a while.
What does it mean, when you shed your cover,
And you candidly bare your soul?
You said it's a first, but you wanted a lover,
That I was truly a part of your goal.
What does it mean, when you share precious moments,
With the stranger that you've come to know?
When your mind isn't closed, your confessions are open
And your heart is beginning to show.
What does it mean, when you tell me you love me,
Then go away, leaving me to wonder?
It's become too difficult, to still think of me
Or get away from the spell that you're under.
What does it mean, when you come back again,
And convince me that nothing is wrong?
You share with me words, and songs that pretend
To show the real you, that you hid all along.
What does it mean, when you think that I'm caught,
I'm not who I say, that I'm lying to you?
You openly admit that you're not who I thought
But you can't explain what you're trying to do.
What does it mean, when you won't break the silence,
And you pretend that I never existed?
You act as though heartbreak is part of the violence,
And our love was by fate, but it's twisted.
What does it mean, when you read from this page,
And you remember the feelings you're hiding?
Does your heart allow you to put down your rage,
Can I deliver you from the life you've been fighting?
