Pandora

What are you doing now
Dancing on the brink of the forbidden
I feel you breaking ground
Digging for the hurts that I have hidden
And if you let me now
I know that I could never help but open up to you
But when I sing it out
I can't unsay the words and even less deny the truth

I see your open eyes
They're meeting mine the same
But I'm not afraid
I am not afraid
I locked it all inside
But when the dark escapes
Only hope remains
Only hope remains

I built this house of mine
A box of bitter words
And threw away the key
But you told me not to hide
When I said you're not alone
You gave the same to me
And now you're tampering and pulling at my heart
While I'm out drowning in the deep
But I'm not arguing
I'm blinded by the light
But it's worth coming up to breathe

I see your open eyes
They're meeting mine the same
But I'm not afraid
I am not afraid
I locked it all inside
But when the dark escapes
Only hope remains
Only hope remains

And still it's so hard to believe
That you would come this close to me
It seems you caught me by surprise
But I won't question what I've seen
I wouldn’t trade you for anything
I dare the world to tell me why

I see your open eyes
They're meeting mine the same
But I'm not afraid
I am not afraid
I locked it all inside
But when the dark escapes
Only hope remains
Only hope remains
