lyrics

Mystery

It’s a mystery
A twisted riddle in my storyline
I have a history
Of secret meanings in between the lines

I need the language
That secret tongue of hidden words
Soft and unassuming
The kind of sounds that only few have heard

That’s the reason why I lie beside you in your bed
Search the dawning light for clues
That’s the reason for this darkly brooding beating heart
To learn the language that you use

I want to understand and if I can
I’ll walk the desert sands and back for more
You’re a labyrinth honey
But I’ve walked that dusty maze before

But I lack the language
The secret tongue of hidden words
Soft with such allure
The kind of sounds that all the gods adore

That’s the reason for these cracked and calloused, broken hands
That grapple with your point of view
That’s the reason why I wrestle with the whirling wind
To learn the language that you use

That you use
Oh honey
My girl ain’t this funny
I’m the one
I’m the one

It’s mystery
But maybe it’s all something in my head
I got a history
Of fabricating more than what’s been said

I need the language
The secret tongue of hidden words
Soft and reassuring
The kind of sounds that you have never heard

That’s the reason for this altar and the smoked-filled room
The shaman’s bitter mystic brew
That’s the reason why I howl with all the dogs at night
To learn the language that you use

That’s the reason for the memory of looking back
And straining to recall the view
That’s the reason I remember to forget all that
To learn the language that you use

That you use
Oh honey
My girl ain’t that funny
I’m the one
