Paint what you know, not what you see
Hope blinds reason, thankfully
Know how it is when something fits
There's just a question of being it

I'd do anything to see you smile again
And I'd go anywhere so as not to feel your pain
I wanna live and the fear is all gone
I wanna protect and I know what it's from
I wasn't made for secrets like these
Chinese whispers, memories

Nothing is done without effect 
There's nothing done that won't reflect
Pull one brick from an endless wall
Would it drown us all?

'Cause I'd do anything to see you smile again
And I'd go anywhere so as not to feel your pain
'Cause I wanna live where the fear is all gone
I wanna protect, and I know what it's from
I wasn't made for secrets like these 
Chinese whispers and memories

You just need love like you say you do
And there may never be a time when it won't get through
Yeah, you know how it is when something fits
Now there's just a question of being it

And I'd do anything to see you smile again
But I'd go anywhere so as not to feel your pain
'Cause I wanna live and the fear is all gone
I wanna protect, and I know what it's from
Yeah I wasn't made for secrets like these
Chinese whispers, memories

Nothing is done without effect 
There's nothing done that won't reflect
If I pull one brick from an endless wall
Would it drown us all?
