What You Really Mean

Album: We Can Do Anything (2016)

  • I seen you treat love as a simple mark
    Caught up in moments of electric spark
    Step inside just as you leave your mark
    Defenseless

    But sometimes when you look at me
    In the darkness of your eyes, I see
    What you really mean

    Tell me lovers play a fickle game
    A broken heart's just another name
    For wounded pride in a war of lame
    Pretenses

    But sometimes when you look at me
    In the darkness of your eyes I see
    What you really mean

    Wonder of what can I be denied
    You pay the toll and you take the ride
    You give it all or else you haven't tried
    You don't lay, halfway

    Dreams not asked for I see right through you
    There's not much difference in the things that we do
    I know you better than you want me to
    But still

    Sometimes when you look at me
    In the darkness of your eyes I see
    What you really mean

    Wonder of what can I be denied
    You pay the toll and you take the ride
    You give it all or else you haven't tried
    You don't lay, halfway
    You don't lay, halfway

    I know there's some things that you can't erase
    I shake my head as I watch you chase
    From place to place, so as not to face
    The chances

    That sometimes when you look at me
    In the darkness of my eyes you'll see
    What I really mean

    What you really mean
