Lyrics[edit]

    I got you
    And that's all I want
    I won't forget
    That's a whole lot
    I don't go out
    Now that you're in
    Sometimes we shout
    But that's no problem
    
    I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
    You can see my eyes, tell that I'm not lying
    
    Look at you,
    You're a pageant
    You're everything
    That I've imagined
    When something's wrong
    I feel uneasy
    You show me
    Tell me you're not teasing
    
    I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
    You can see my eyes, tell that I'm not lying
    I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
    You can see my eyes, tell me you're not lying?
    
    There's no doubt
    Not when I'm with you
    When I'm without
    I stay in my room
    You show me
    Tell me you're not teasing
    When something's wrong
    I feel uneasy
    
    I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
    You can see my eyes, tell that I'm not lying
    I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
    You can see my eyes, tell that I'm not lying

Trivia[edit]

  • The band dedicated the song to Roman Polański at one of the two only public live performances.
