and she stands surrounded by a mystery
i know that i will never really understand
and her secret life will always seem to me
to be a bird that is never quite in hand

but there are secrets i can never know

and i speak in suggestion and metaphor
i lead her through a never-ending labyrinth
through a hall, wall to wall with a million doors
through my mind's clutter, stutters and babbled hints

but there are secrets she can never know

and we walk hand in hand underneath the night
aware of words that are never on the tongue
and in the space in the sky where there isn't light
there is a void that is never understood

but there are secrets we can never know
