Eavesdropping Heart


I’m stalking like a rook,
Trying to read you like a book,
And hear the secrets stumblin’,
I step into your skin,
Drink the wine in your blood
And find a whole new meaning.

I’ll make a confession,
{though I don’t think it’s a sin}

I’ve got an Eavesdropping Heart,
And I’ve been stringing spaces from far,
‘cos I want to know you like a mirror,
And be your secret sharer,
I want to know you like you know yourself,
Oh, I’ve got an Eavesdropping Heart.

There are times I want to slide,
In the rhythm of your life,
burn the rhyme of distance,
And break your deep silence,
Find, what’s going on inside,
Inside your secret mind.

I’ll make a confession,
{though I don’t think it’s a sin}

I’ve got an Eavesdropping Heart,
And I’ve been stringing spaces from far,
‘cos I want to know you like a mirror,
And be your secret sharer,
I want to know you like you know yourself,
Oh, I’ve got an Eavesdropping Heart.

There are times I am sitting close to you,
But there’s a gulf between us,
And each cell in my body cries,
Between us there can’t be lies.

I want to know you like you know yourself,
I want to know you like you know yourself,
I want to know you like you know yourself,
I want to know you like you know yourself.

I want to know you like a mirror,
And be your secret sharer,
I want to know you like you know yourself,
Oh, I’ve got an Eavesdropping Heart.
