You are subtle as a window pane standing in my view,
but I will wait for it to rain so that I can see you
You call me up at night when there's no light passing through,
and you think that I don't understand, but I do
We don't say everything that we could
So that we can say later "oh, you misunderstood."
I hold my cards up close to my chest
I say what I have to and I hold back the rest

'Cause someone you don't know is someone you don't know
Get a firm grip, girl before you let go
For every hand extended another lies in wait
Keep your eye on that one
Anticipate

Dress down, get out there
Pick a fight with the police
We will get it all on film for the new release
Seems like everyone's an actor or they're an actor's best friend
I wonder what was wrong to begin with that they should all have to pretend
We lost sight of everything
when we have to keep checking our backs
I think we should all just smile
Come clean and relax

If there's anything I've learned, all these years on my own,
it's how to find my own way there
and how to find my own way back home.
