Lyric

Why oh why, why won't you let me in
I oh I, I am here as a friend
Why are you so quiet as if you got something to hide, and why are you so cold as if you don't want to be hold, why can't you look in to my eyes is it because you're scared to see yourself inside
I really wanna know what it is but how can I when you don't give me a chance maybe you think I won't understand but I am here as a friend

I wish I could watch your soul to know you better
I wish I could read you as a book letter by letter
I wish I could watch your soul to know you better
I wish I could read you as a book letter by letter

Why are you so quiet as if you got something to hide, and why are you so cold as if you don't want to be hold
Why can't I get through to you oh I feel so frustrated cause I don't know what to do
I really wanna know what it is but how can I when you don't give me a chance maybe you think I won't understand but I am here as a friend

I wish I could watch your soul to know you better
I wish I could read you as a book letter by letter
I wish I could watch your soul to know you better
I wish I could read you as a book letter by letter
