"Into Me You See" is the title of a song by Katy Perry from her fifth studio album, Witness. The song is written by Katy Perry and Ferras, as well as Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard of the group, Hot Chip.

Background

Perry announced the title of the song before her show in The Water Rats in London, United Kingdom during a livestream with CapitalFM.[1] The song's title is meant to be a play in words as it sounds like the word "intimacy" when said fast enough. She said the song is about "how someone broke the spell of me being scared of intimacy, and now I'm ready to be open." Perry revealed that the song almost didn't make the album and was even being considered for an acoustic record she had been planning for years. The original cut was produced by Hot Chip and was more uptempo. Perry felt 15 songs on the album would have made it too long, but decided to include the track along with others to make up for the four year break she took, as well as being able to give the whole message of the album. The song was reworked to be slower and was meant to close the album.

Lyrics

I built a wall, so high no one could reach
A life of locks, I swallowed all the keys
I was petrified, only knew how to hide
They can't hurt me, if they don't know me
A full facade, made a mirage out of me

Then you came and started digging for a treasure underneath
And you found a better version of me, I had never seen

Into me you see
Into me you see
You broke me wide open, open sesame
Into me you see
Into me you see
You got me wide open, now I'm ready
Is this intimacy

I was a ship, floating aimlessly
So camouflaged, was my own worst enemy
Then you came in like a sailor with a heart that anchored me
And every day I wake up grateful I'm no longer lost at sea

Into me you see
Into me you see
You broke me wide open, open sesame
Into me you see
Into me you see
You got me wide open, now I'm ready
Is this intimacy

Oh, 'cause no one's ever seen me like this
Seen right through the bullshit
I pray that I can keep unfolding
Pray that I can just stay open
(Just stay open, just stay open, just stay open)

Oh, 'cause you broke me wide open, open sesame
Into me you see, into me you see.
You got me wide open, now I'm ready, this is intimacy
