Lyrics

I Don’t Know

A house and home appeared to be vitally sound
In a few words and a minute, burned down to the ground
In a poverty of passion these walls could not withstand
The gravity of living and the elements at hand

“I Don’t Know” “I Don’t Know”
How the wind can change direction
How a lie avoids detection
How the perfect love can die
“I Don’t Know” “I Don’t Know”
How a heart survives deception
I don’t know why it’s so hard to say goodbye

Good intentions mend some promises that break
But a myth devoid of kindness is just too hard to take
I’m disposing all your reasons to close the book on what’s been said
Cause it’s more and more confusing with every chapter that gets read

“I Don’t Know” “I Don’t Know”
How the wind can change direction
How a lie avoids detection
How the perfect love can die
“I Don’t Know” “I Don’t Know”
How a heart survives deception
I don’t know why it’s so hard to say goodbye

I knew you from a distance
It was real as it could seem
Now I’m here like some lost character
Locked outside your secret scheme
I Don’t Know how to fix a broken dream

They ask me how I’m doin’. I say “I guess ok”
We talk about relations and don’t bring up your name
I guess it’s better not to mention, I’m living to forget
In time I won’t remember, but it hasn’t happened yet

“I Don’t Know” “I Don’t Know”
How the wind can change direction
How a lie avoids detection
How the perfect love can die
“I Don’t Know” “I Don’t Know”
How a heart survives deception
I don’t know why it’s so hard to say goodbye
