lyrics

There’s a key in the door
and I know what it’s for
and I’ve known all the time
since you left it there
and went inside

There’s a dice in my hand
that I don’t understand
all the sides show your face
why do I throw it again and again
looking for change
when my choice has been made

I try to leave to chance
what chance won’t put its hands on
Time won’t tell
Fate is blind
I try to read it in the stars
when it’s all over your face
that there will always be
only one key

You have asked with your eyes
after things I disguise
I guess they show
every time that I let you go
I just want to follow

but I’ll be late, I know how
turning stones even now
all this time
that I spend, why
when the treasure is already found
I was sure it was lost
but you were always around

I try to leave to chance . . .

I try to read it in the stars
when it’s all over your face
that there will always be
only one key
