lyrics

She was a blur in a passing window
A random moment locked on hold
A picture postcard, so picture perfect
She was a defect in the cog

Long summer nights underneath the street lights
Amidst the buzzing of the wires
But I'm just dreaming and dreams don't happen
Although she always said they might

Sometimes I sit and I feel her near me
A well run desert and the snow
I reach out and I touch the darkness
With all the light, I wonder why she had to go?

The friends and family that she collected
They don't remember her now
A public place and a forced exposure
Sometimes I think she did it all, or wanted to

But I knew her, I know I felt her
or I wouldn't feel this way
I felt her, I must have known her
or I wouldn't have known how

The girl, the girl who
The girl who knew too much
They've come and taken her, taken her away

Throwing her secrets out all the windows
Deaf ears grab them as they fall
Just like a sphinx without a mystery
Maybe there's nothing there at all

If I knew then what I think I know now
I still could not have changed a thing
If I know now what I think I know now
Well, I'll see you in the end

The girl, the girl who
The girl who knew too much
They've come and taken her, taken her away
