If the light does not reveal what I'm feeling for you
If the light does not expose
Please don't fret my precious heart if you don't understand
Keep in mind, you're not alone
And I may never find the words that paint what you are to me
And I may never find them whole

If the light is not as kind as the truth is ugly
Every mirror's not a door
Just a stranger always kicking, crying, criticizing
Stranger leave yourself alone
And I may never know the reasons why I said what I did
And I may never know it, when I did it, I think I knew it
Now I only hope that I get through it

You could have been my guide to the other side
Out of this storm raging inside
But my hands were tied to the wall of pride
And my legs were shackled to the floor of pride

I guess it's why my blood, it goes ballistic when I see you
Danger turns my heart, a-drum
It's only you who sends my body wheeling for the exit
It's only me I'm running from
And I may never know what I was doing far from your side
And I may never know it, when I did it, I think I knew it
Now I only hope that I get through it

You could have been my guide to the other side
Out of this storm raging inside
But my hands were tied to the wall of pride
And my legs were shackled to the floor of pride

You could have been my guide to the other side
Out of this storm raging inside
But my hands were tied to the wall of pride
And my legs were shackled to the floor of pride

    General CommentThe narrator is deeply in love with the woman that they're speaking about but they're caught up by their own feelings of pride and fear. He recognizes this but seems at a loss to do anything about it and accepts that he's going to lose the relationship because of it.
