I show you things inside of me
And I might tell you all my little dreams
And I will hold you in the dead of night
I will hold you, I will hold you tight
I will walk you to your waiting train
And I will kiss you in the pouring rain
Inside of me is joy and pain
But inside of me, some things remain

‘Cos I can’t tell you, I can’t tell you
Everything behind my eyes
No, I can’t tell you, I can’t tell you
No matter how hard I may try

I might tell you why it is I cry
And I might talk until my tears are dry
Oh, whenever you might leave my side
I will tremble like the candle light
My heart will fly whenever you might smile
And I will walk that extra bitter mile
But ask me to explain a sight
And will stumble through a pantomime

‘Cos I can’t tell you, I can’t tell you
Everything behind my eyes
No, I can’t tell you, I can’t tell you
No matter how hard I may try

I’ll call you in my times of need
I will show you where it is I bleed
I will ask you to forgive my sins
And I will clutch you ’til the fever ends
I will take you when the feeling’s right
And I will love you more than I love my life
But ask me what lies deep inside
And in silence I’ll turn out the light

‘Cos I can’t tell you, I can’t tell you
Everything behind my eyes
Oh, I can’t tell you, no, I can’t tell you
No matter how hard I may try
