The Great Unknown

from Long Story Short (Remastered) by The Phosphenes



You say that you love me
But I don’t know what you mean (I just don’t know)
You say you’re thinking of me
But your thoughts are unseen (They just don’t show)
I get under your skin, I know, is it a virtue or a sin?
I just don’t know, you just don’t know

You smile when you see me
But I don’t know what’s beneath (I just don’t know)
Your face is beaming
But are you clenching your teeth? (It just don’t show)
You’re feeling alright, I know, but is it our last night?
I just don’t know, you just don’t know

I am the great unknown, that much you have shown
You are the great don’t know, that much I know
But I don’t know what to do

You say you want me and I know you do
(I want you too)
I wonder what you’ll do with me
But I haven’t a clue (It’s up to you)
I really make you smile, I know, but is it all worthwhile?
I just don’t know, you just don’t know
