Woo
Baby...
No 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 wanted 2 keep U, sometimes wanted ur love
But 've awakened 2 the reality that sometimes is not enuff (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
'll give back ur name if U give back my heart

U said U'd take me 2 another world
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 & ever had 2 fight, no
Sometimes wanted 2 keep U, sometimes wanted ur love
But 've awakened 2 the reality that sometimes is not enuff
Oh, now ur touch is a reminder like the thorns upon a rose
The beauty is mine if can stand the cut

U said U'd take me 2 another world
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
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)
