I've never been too good at reading signals
Sometimes I'm looking when there's none to see
Your hieroglyphic means of conversation
Never really done too much for me
I need to know, do you feel more than you've shown?
Or, am I chasing shadows hopelessly?
Y'see, I'm pretty bad at reading signals
And, you're really good at being hard to read

Sometimes I wish that you had never called me
It might have been much easier for me
I was getting pretty good at being lonely
It's really not as bad as it might seem
Now, I'm confused, 'cause you don't leave many clues
'Bout where we stand or how you think of me
I see my friends and sometimes they ask about you
I tell 'em you're my Little Mystery

I swing so fast from wanting to be near you
To giving up to save my sanity
And, I know you've got to figure out your own life
Before you can share much of it with me
But, more and more, all them kisses at your door
Are leaving me with feelings bittersweet
I sure don't want to be no one's distraction
Won't you tell it to me straight, my Mystery?
Can't you tell it to me clean, my Mystery?
Or, will you always be my Little Mystery?
