311

Year 311 (CCCXI) was a common year starting on Monday (link will display the full calendar) of the Julian calendar. At the time, it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Valerius and Maximinus (or, less frequently, year 1064 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 311 for this year has been used si… more »

I want the words, something you haven't heard
Will I find them and will I have what it takes to say them?
In the world beside this one, there are no lies
And no suspicion, only dreams without end

You gotta feel what I mean
Look into my eyes and know 
I'm trying to come clean but I stumble every time
And then the words they escape, fail to take shape
It's all in the code now, come again

Feel what I mean
Look into my eyes and know 
I'm trying to come clean but I stumble every time
And then the words they escape, fail to take shape
It's all in the code now

Will you let me retract, let me take it back
Sometimes my words lack and my mind flies off the track
What I'm trying to convey is miles from what I say
And you slip away

In life there are times when nothing will rhyme
There are days I slip when I know I should climb
Breakin' the vows I swore I'd never break
A harsh word, a white lie, easy to mistake
Where have you been, haven't you noticed?
There's no map that exists to point us out of this
My heart was the target, it found your arrow
Baby, you know I want to be your straight and narrow

I been trying to transmit a feeling
I been hoping you receive what I'm revealing
See the main thing is hang with me and relate
As we communicate watch out 
Fenced in like a dog between houses
Balled up by the trouble my mouth gets
Wrapped up in the things that I don't know 
Don't you know 
Hoping that you crack the code oh

The first to crack the code
You may not think I'm ready to have your love again
Oh, whoa, whoa (you may not think I'm ready) 
You are the first to crack my code

I want the words, something you haven't heard
Will I find them and will I have what it takes to say them?

You gotta, gotta feel what I mean
Look into my eyes and know 
I'm trying to come clean but I stumble every time
And then the words they escape, fail to take shape
It's all in the code now 

Didn't I know I'm wrong, wrong, wrong when you knew
You didn't have to give me so long, long, long to see through
Not predictable what I will do, but you know
Cause you cracked the code

Your body is a country that you know I'll return to
Craving like a family heirloom that I am into
No, baby, how could I follow everything you do
Just remember when we touch, I feel so renewed

The first to understand me, that would be you
It can't work if we can't be open and true
The best thing to happen to me, let it be told
That would be the moment that you cracked my code
Oh, whoa, whoa 

The first to crack the code
You may not think I'm ready to have your love again
Oh, whoa, whoa (you may not think I'm ready) 
You are the first to crack my code
