Don't Draw the Shades

from Within​/​Without by Danya River



Don't draw the shades
I want to see into your living room
What kind of girl are you?
What kind of boy are you?

Don't draw the shades
I want to see what kind of clothes you wear
when there is no one there...

Ya-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie

Don't introduce me to the same locked door that you show everyone
I know there is an open one
Please usher me in
I long to kneel in your secret chamber
where you hide your treasure

Ya-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie

Don't draw the shades I want to see out side my living room
Don't draw the shades I'll bare the view into my living room

Ya-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie
