lyrics

Jones knows everything about me,
I swear her eyes can read my mind
She doesn’t tell, but I can tell she knows me
And she has the key to something that I could use

And I, I don’t know myself all that well
So I worry for myself and
What she thinks of me would mean quite an awful lot to me
Tell me who I am cause right now I’m just confused

Some people think badly about me
I wish she would tell me what she sees
Would you tell me that it’s so,

Would you tell me that it’s so and I am not the one you want
Would you tell me that it’s over and I promise I will stop,
I’ll let go of this now

Been so caught up in criticizing myself,
Measuring against everyone else that now I’m
Immersed in doubt and standing frozen at center stage,
Looking out for someone to validate my hope

Some people think badly about me
But if that will deny me this one thing
Would you tell me that it’s so,

Would you tell me that it’s so and I am not the one you want
Would you tell me that it’s over and I promise I will stop,
I’ll give up on this now

Do I set my sights just a little too high when I look at you?
Is this a mirror on the wall that I’m talking to?
If Jones has said to me,
You’re getting older now, it’s time to forget that dream

I set my sights just a little too high when I look at you
And it’s a mirror the wall that I’m talking to
If Jones has said to me,
You’re getting older now, it’s time to forget that dream,
Forget that dream
Forget that dream
