Never Meant to Know

The lines in my face
Will lead you to my heart
If you really want to see what’s on show
They’ll tell you who I am
And why I don’t give a damn
And why right now I have to go
Before I tell you things you were never meant to know

The sound of my voice
Will lead you to my soul
A lonely place where everything moves so slow
You can say the fault is mine
That I failed to read the signs
On that corner all those years ago
When I told her things she was never meant to know

It was never meant to be like this
So close your eyes
Give me a kiss
Follow me down
It was never meant to be like this
So close your eyes
Give me a kiss
Follow me down to where tomorrow dies

The feel of my touch
Will lead you to yourself
To the river where all our feelings flow
You may see the way ahead
Where the living and the dead
Are just a tiny step from yes to no
And we learn things we were never meant to know
