SHE IS STILL A MYSTERY TO ME (Sebastian)


Remember hallways, you're waiting always
To see behind the door
You never seen her, you're gonna meet her
The first time so unsure
She smiles your way through a window
You smile right back, she runs away
You wish little girls would sit still
just a little bit longer, longer

And she's still a mystery to me
I thought I'd grow up gracefully
And understand my woman finally
But the more I see
The more I see there is to see, there is to see
And she's still a mystery to me
(She's still a mystery to me)
She's still a mystery to me

I used to wonder when in thunder
Understandin's done
But now I'm graspin' that understandin'
Is only part of love
She'll smile your way through a window
You'll smile right back, she'll run away
You wish little girls would sit still
just a little bit longer, longer

And she's still a mystery to me
I thought I'd grow up gracefully
And understand her finally
But she's a mystery to me
But she's a mystery to me
