The Right To Know

I would be so impressed if you
Put down your guard, took off your dress
And lay down with me so I might confess to you
Everything on my mind

But you don’t look like you want to hear
My deepest thoughts and biggest fears
For they may cause you too many tears
And none of the good kind

Promise you won’t be upset
Promise you won’t fall apart on me
That’s not what I need
Give me your high show me your low
Tell me something even though
You’re so scared of letting go
Cause I have earned the right to know.

There are things I would like to say
If I thought it would be okay
But I can’t say them any other way
And I’m running out of desire

And it would be a crime to think
We couldn’t share more than a drink
Without it sending us to the brink
Of putting out the fire

Promise you won’t be upset
Promise you won’t fall apart on me
That’s not what I need
Give me your high show me your low
Tell me something even though
You’re so scared of letting go
Cause I have earned the right to know.

When you feel so-so
You don’t have to hide
What you feel inside
I want you to be
free when you’re with me

Promise you won’t be upset
Promise you won’t fall apart on me
That’s not what I need
Give me your high show me your low
Tell me something even though
You’re so scared of letting go
Cause I have earned the right to know.
