What do you keep inside?

What are these secrets that you hide?

I thought that I knew you

How much of what you said was untrue?

You kept telling me lies

As you looked right into my eyes

The person I thought I knew

Oh, that wasn’t even you

 

You made me promises

That I was naïve enough to believe

I thought you cared for me

But I never meant anything

Despite your deceit

I can’t seem to walk away

For once, I felt complete

For once, I felt okay

 

What do you keep inside?

What are these secrets that you hide?

I thought that I knew you

How much of what you said was untrue?

You kept telling me lies

As you looked right into my eyes

The person I thought I knew

Oh, that wasn’t even you

 

Why couldn’t you be yourself?

You chose to fool me

I hope you’re happy now

While I’m here crying quietly

You lied right to my face

But I still can’t get you off my mind

I can feel your warm embrace

Your love is nothing I will find

 

What do you keep inside?

What are these secrets that you hide?

I thought that I knew you

How much of what you said was untrue?

You kept telling me lies

As you looked right into my eyes

The person I thought I knew

Oh, that wasn’t even you

 

I know you’ll slowly fade

Right now you’re still vibrant

You’re alive and I’m afraid

You’re dancing and I’m broken

Get out of my head

Allow me to forget

Inside I am dead

Somewhere there’s a pulse

 

What do you keep inside?

What are these secrets that you hide?

I thought that I knew you

How much of what you said was untrue?

You kept telling me lies

As you looked right into my eyes

The person I thought I knew

Oh, that wasn’t even you
