I wanna open this heart
I want so much to be played
But both of us
We stay on our guard in the same way

And I know, it's just the book I write

All that we knew, just a clue
All that we was, just because
I never knew

I wanna trigger your heart
There's something else beside the silver we bought
Hey hey

And it's the book I write
I let it go so long
Another book I write
Oh, oh

All that we are, all we do
All that we are, all we do
Is here forever

All that we was, just because
All that we blew, just a clue
I never knew

This is the book I write
Oh, I let it go on so long
No, no

    General CommentThis song was written specifically for the movie "STRANGER THAN FICTION" If you see the movie the lyrics make a little more sense.
    Okay, here is my rendition.
    ..........................................................................

    One, two

    I wanna open this heart
    and want so much to play
    but both of us, stay on our guard in the safe way.
    and I know this is the book that I write.

    All that we knew , just a clue
    All that we was,
    Just because, I never knew.

    Well, I wanna trigger your heart, Haha
    There's something else besides us, if we want.
    Hey hey

    And it's the book I'll write.
    I let it go so long,and now the book that I write oh...oh

    This is it.
    Now I'm gone.

    All that we are,all we do
    All that we are, all we do
    It's here forever.
    All that we was, just because
    All that we blew, just a clue I never knew

    This is the book I write
    Oh and I let it go so long long long...

    General CommentSo many people hear so many different things when they hear this song.

    To me it sounds both forlorn and brimming with passion.

    Love, love, love: All that we are, all we do Is here forever.

    My InterpretationShort and sweet. It follows the dynamic of the film, that is, the duality of the author and the permanence of her words, projected on to her living character Harold Crick.
