This song deals with who we are inside. What do we think about when no one is around - no ego, no airs, just us.
In the night when you lie in your bed
What remains? What thoughts play in your head?
Do memories of yesterday fill your mind?
Or do thoughts of tomorrow leave the past behind?
In those moments when nothing interferes
Where does your mind go when all disappears?
Are you haunted by failings? Or buoyed by joys?
To face what we find here, we have no choice.
There's a secret place deep inside of you
Filled with good and bad, what you've done, what you do
All your hopes, and dreams, and your fears here too
Some don't want to go there. If so, they're going nowhere.
What do you do with what you find in this place?
Is it an open book you share with the whole human race?
Or do you lock it away and remove the key?
Making sure it remains a mystery.
There's a secret place deep inside us all
It's the place that we go when we stand, when we fall
Some may hide in there if they're feeling small
Soon there'll be no pain there, for we will be somewhere.
