You come out at night
And the dark side's light
You strut your rasta wear
And a cross from a faith that died
You're building a mystery
You live in a church
And you won't give up the search
You wear sandals in the snow
Can you look out the window

With an edge and charm
When I'm in your arms
'Cause you're working
Holding on and holding it in
Building a mystery

A prayer from your secret god
And hold back your tears, oh
And a know it all grin
When the evening's thin
You're a beautiful
You're setting up your

Building a mystery
Yeah you're working
And choosing so carefully
Oh, you're working,
Holding on and holding it in
Building a mystery
Yeah, you're working,
Holding on and holding it in,
Building a mystery
