Ooh
Oh yeah, baby
Ooh...

U said my heart's just like an open book
But there r lines U've never seen
U said that U could tell n a single look
But U never looked n between

Sometimes I wanted 2 keep U, sometimes I wanted ur love
But I've awakened 2 the reality that sometimes is not enough
(Over) Our separate dreams pulled us our separate ways
We were so different from the very start
2 me it was 4ever, 2 U it was just a phase
I'll give back ur name if U give back my heart

U said U'd take me 2 another world
I said U were only posing
U'd never b able 2 read this girl
So the open book is closing, closing, closing
Closing (Oh oh oh)

Sometimes it felt so natural, sometimes it felt so right
It doesn't seem fair that U and I ever had a fight, no
Sometimes I wanted 2 keep U, sometimes I wanted ur love
But I've awakened 2 the reality that sometimes is not enough
Oh, now ur touch is a reminder like the thorns upon a rose
The beauty is mine if I can stand the cut

U said U'd take me 2 another world
I said U were only posing
U'd never b able 2 read this girl
So the open book is closing, closing, closing
Closing (Oh oh oh)

U said U'd take me 2 another world
I said U were only posing
U'd never b able 2 read this girl
So the open book is closing, closing, closing
Closing (Oh oh oh)
