  • I only go where I'm wanted
    You go only where you want
    I aim to be more like you
    There is a ghost in my house
    Rattling handles on every door
    Show us an open window or two
    Would you? Oh woah

    Doors are starting to close
    And you drew a rose my, my
    Your mind it is original, oh oh oh oh oh oh
    You're skeleton key, opening me,
    My, my your mind it is original
    Girl you're the original
    Always were and always will be

    The flowers of adaptation
    Unfold and lovingly alarm
    You effortlessly ring that bell
    Your stripes are yours and yours only
    The bow ideal of rare birds
    And now I am under your spell
    Oh woah, under your spell

    Doors are starting to close
    And you drew a rose my, my
    Your mind it is original, oh oh oh oh oh oh
    You're skeleton key, opening me,
    My, my your mind it is original
    Girl you're the original

    [Repeat: x5]
    Always were

    And will be

    Doors are starting to close
    And you drew a rose my, my
    Your mind it is original, oh oh oh oh oh oh
    You're skeleton key, opening me,
    My, my your mind it is original
    Girl the original
    Always were, always will be Writer/s: Benjamin Lee Kenney, Brandon Charles Boyd, Christopher E Kilmore, Jose Anthony Ii Pasillas, Michael Aaron Einziger
