Lyrics

I don’t know you
I only know your name
But when you look into my eyes
I feel your pain
I can’t imagine the life you live
But is it for me to think
What I think
Is it for me to be looking
Behind the veil

It wasn’t long ago when you said
More things like I do
It wasn’t long ago when you did
More things that you wanted to
I can’t imagine the life you live
But is it for me to think
What I think
Is it for me to be looking
Behind the veil

I can see your longing to be
Somewhere in a different place
Anywhere
It’s hidden in your face
Everywhere
I see you yearn
You say you want to learn
You’ve got a plan, you feel hope
You see a future
Far away in another land
Your mother’s another generation
She’s lived a different life
She believes
You’re the family abberation
She doesn’t understand your fight

I don’t know you
But I feel we’re just the same
And when I look
Into your hurting eyes
I feel my shame
I can’t imagine the life you live
But is it for me to think
What I think
Is it for me to be looking
Behind the veil

I can see how confusing it would be
You want justification
Why the changes
Behind the veil, all the limitations
You said it all
By the way you let it fall
Slipping off your face, your disgrace
Down your back, a punishable act
Your sister would feel naked
She’d be lost to be free
You’d be foresaken
If you act out independently

I don’t know you
But I see you in the flame
And when I look into
Your burning eyes
I need someone to blame
I can’t imagine the life you live
But is it for me to think
What I think
Is it for me to be looking
Behind the veil
To be looking behind the veil
Looking behind the veil
Behind the veil
