You watch me at the window from your place on the couch
You watch me pretendnig that I am really looking out
You say: "Come here, I can't see you in this light"
But I'm much safer beside the moon tonight

When I am a silhouette
I have no fear, I can love you from here
When I am a silhouette
I can give myself to you, and you never see through
Never through

Don't come too close or you'll see my edge is rough
And you'll make me wonder if I will be enough
You'll make me worry that somehow you will see
That there is always something small and trembling in me

When I am a silhouette
I have no fear, I can love you from here
When I am a silhouette
I can give myself to you, and you never see through
Never through

No place to hide in your single bed
No look of mine that you haven't read
I've always been an easy read
Just once I want to be a mystery
So though you tell me it will be alright
I'm much safer beside the moon tonight

When I am a silhouette
I have no fear, I can love you from here
When I am a silhouette
I can give myself to you, and you never see through
Never through
