It's a shame when you know when you know this.
When you roll your eyes back in your head.
Fall asleep again and you're wakened.
By the sounds of your heart when it's broken.

Beautiful the scene every time.
When I look at your face in the night.
It's so bad, the things in my mind.

But I swear I'll never leave you here.
Cause we deserve a second chance.
I promise I'm not looking back.
I'll love you till the end of this.
I'll take away your fear.

I can't believe we're doing this.
And all the secrets that we've kept have kept us from the best of this.
The best of you and me.

You bottle it up inside.
And take all the things I deny.
And throw it away on the left.
And take it back on the right.

Beautiful the scene every time.
When I look at your face in the night.
It's so bad, the things in my mind.

But I swear I'll never leave you here.
Cause we deserve a second chance.
I promise I'm not looking back.
I'll love you till the end of this.
I'll take away your fear.

I can't believe we're doing this.
And all the secrets that we've kept, have kept us from the best of this.
The best of you and me.
The best of you and me.

Control this
Control this
Control this
Control this
Control this

It's a shame when you know when you know this. (Control this)
When you roll your eyes back in your head. (Control this)
Fall asleep again and you're wakened. (Control this)
By the sounds of your heart when it's broken. (Control this)

Beautiful the scene every time. (Control this)
When I look at your face in the night. (Control this)
When I look at your face in the night. (Control this)
When I look at your face in the night. (Control this)

    General CommentI believe this song is about a relationship reigniting.

    It's about how a couple may have broken up or had a really bad fight based on lies that both people told, and how the singer wants to make it work because the love is real.

    or something to that effect, anyway.

    General CommentBeautiful song! I think its about a relationship that's starting and how they're falling in love, how their relationship is so much better when she expresses her heart to him. At the same time he wants to control their passion. Maybe because he doesn't want his heart to be broken (Fall asleep again and you're wakened.By the sounds of your heart when it's broken.) Or maybe he wants to control it because since he's a Christian, he wants to keep God first in his life.
