I couldn't fall asleep at all last night my mind was racin'
I left so much behind to find the dream that I was chasin'
And now I have a need to take a look at what is real
I need to learn to live and love and breathe and touch and feel

But all I really know is what I see
And everybody sees it differently
I wish someone could open up my heart and look inside of me
But I'm the only one who holds the key

Your body lay aglow as if to show you peacefully dreamin'
So only you could know that deep inside somebody was screamin'
And callin' out to anyone who could help you through the night
And hopin' that someone would come along to make it right

But all you really know is what you see
And everybody sees it differently
I wish someone could open up your soul and set the demon free
But you're the only one who holds the key

Still all I really know is what I see
And everybody sees it differently
I wish someone could open up my heart and look inside of me
But I'm the only one who holds the key

And all I really know is what I see
And everybody sees it differently
I wish someone could open up my heart and look inside of me
But I'm the only one, I'm the only one, I'm the only one who holds the key
