Sober and sedate
     My fears and tears
My hopes and fate
     Locked tight within me

You may converse now with my mind,
     But don't inquire about my heart
It has retreated long before you
     To some secret place and part.

Hidden safely
     Is the key
That locks my feeling
     Inside of me.
