i wish i knew

I wish I could get to know you
But something blocks me and it won’t let me through
I want to know who you really are
Oh won’t you please tell me just who you are
Underneath the smiles and false feelings you project
I want to hear the deep secret you protect
I want to hear what you’re really saying
Underneath all the games you’re playing
Oh won’t you let me in?

You know I want to know
Yet you persist
To hide in the igloo that locks in the rest
The rest of all that is really you
The rest of all I wish I knew

This icy sphere which surrounds your spirit
Suffocates and mutes just so no one can touch it
Why don’t you let down that icy shield
And feel the warmth as ice yields
Revealing your lost imprisoned self
Oh won’t you please just be yourself

Let down the shield for just a day
An hour or a minute
Or at least open the door
And let me in it

You know I want to know
Yet you persist
To hide in the igloo that locks in the rest
The rest of all that is really you
The rest of all I wish I knew
