She’s got questions to ask
So many questions to ask
She doesn’t want to compromise
What she’s feeling now
She’s got whispers to fight
Broken bones earned tonight
Will you forgive me if fate changes my fickle mind

Tell me how will we know
Though our hearts made of gold
Promises don’t guarantee
Our future actions in this place
Secrets aren’t so bad
We’re too young to feel safe
I don’t deserve all this now
Don’t want to feel I’ve made mistakes

I want to tell you everything
I want to tell you everything
But if I tell you everything
What we can build won’t mean a thing
So please don’t tell me everything
So won’t have to tell you everything
And in a way I won’t have to feel so bad

Da da da da da da da da da da da da
La da da da da

Tell me how will we know
Though our hearts made of gold
Promise don’t guarantee
My future actions in this place
Secrets aren’t so bad
I’m too young to feel safe
I don’t deserve all this now
Don’t want to feel I’ve stole my place

I want to tell you everything
I want to tell you everything
But if I tell you everything
What I can build won’t mean a thing
So please don’t tell me everything
So won’t have to tell you everything
And in a way I won’t have to feel so bad

Da da da da da da da da da da da da
La da da da da
Hey!

    General CommentThese lyrics are so typical of girls:

    "I want to tell you everything / I want to tell you everything / But if I tell you everything / What I can build won’t mean a thing / So please don’t tell me everything / So won’t have to tell you everything / And in a way I won’t have to feel so bad"

    Gosh... Why can't girls be less complicated?

    General CommentI don't think it's necessarily how "girls think".

    There are just some things that the person you are with doesn't need to know.

    Unfortunately, you're caught with the fact you love and trust this person and want to tell them but knowing full well it could ruin much of what is there. For example, trust.

    Without trust, a relationship can't be built.

    Hence, nothing could be built from the relationship and it would diminish.

    It has nothing to do with being a "complicated girl".
