Song Description

This song is sung from the perspective of a performer who likes to watch people from a distance & make up her own happy stories about them. But she also realizes that as a performer, people are probably doing the same thing to her when they see her on stage.

Story Behind the Song

I think we've all had the experience of seeing a person from afar & thinking that they were really beautiful, but then when you get up close, you notice their tiny flaws. I always worry that people are seeing me like that when they see me on stage and then see me up close!

Lyrics

I like glancing in windows
When I'm walking at night
I get a little glimpse
Of the perfect family life

But I don't get to close, I don't take it to far
I only imagine who they really are
Who they really are

Reality is so complicated
It's best we left it to imagination
It's all smiles and celebration
In the pretty world of my creation
Trust me when I say it's best
Best we left it to imagination

I like talking with you
From my place in the spotlight
Like a fish in a bowl you'll only ever know
With your distant and forgiving eyes

So don't get to close, you wouldn't understand
You can only imagine who I really am
Who I really am

Repeat Chorus

Oh, behind closed doors
Behind closed hearts
Behind closed eyes
There are tales of old, never to be told
We all keep locked inside

Repeat Chorus
