You gotta lift up every stone, yeah
Shake down every tree
You gotta dig right down to the bottom of the well, oh
To get to the heart of me

You gotta take down every book off the shelf
And flip through every page
Before you'll find the words that'll melt me down
And keep my love encaged

Well, I believe that you and me could be oh so right
But I can see that there are some things that you've gotta learn
Cause, I don't please very easily, it's a struggle, it's a fight
There are some things you can take but this is something you've gotta earn

Lift up every stone, yeah
Shake down every tree
You gotta dig right down to the bottom of the well, oh
To get to the heart of me

You gotta take down every book off the shelf
And flip through every page
Before you'll find the words that'll melt me down
And keep my love encaged

You can try a million lines
You can come from every which way
But I have heard them all a million times
And now I've got something to say

Lift up every stone, yeah
Shake down every tree
You gotta dig right down to the bottom of the well, oh
To get to the heart of me

You gotta take down every book off the shelf
And flip through every page
Before you'll find the words that'll melt me down
Oh, and keep my love encaged

Yeah you gotta unlock every door, yeah
Try every key
You gotta search in every corner of the room
Just to get to the edge of me

You gotta drive down miles and miles of road
Yeah and take every turn
And don't get lost cause you'll never find me
And learn what you've gotta learn

That you've gotta lift up every stone, yeah
Shake down every tree
You gotta dig right down to the bottom of the well, oh
To get to the heart of me

You gotta take down every book off the shelf
Yeah flip through every page
Before you'll find the words that'll melt me down
And keep my love encaged

Yeah keep my love encaged
Yeah keep my love encaged
