What's that they told you
about a book a cover?
Don't judge so quickly,
Is it too much too remember?
'Cause pictures lie,
you know.
I'll show
it's so.
Just give it one thought.

What's that they taught you?
To revere a kind of beauty?
To paint on that pretty veneer
and try to hide whatever's dirty?
Well, faces lie.
You'll see
no sympathy.
Just give it one thought.

Come here and I will whisper true
about the things I know of you,
and you will recognize them,
always...

As near to you as breath and bone,
so dear to me, and yours alone,
and I will love you for them,
always...

What's that they tell you
about a book a cover?
Don't judge so quickly.
They'll tell you one thing and then another.
But see what lies
within,
under the skin.
Just give it one thought.
