"Building a Mystery", by Sarah McLachlan, is a song featured in "Flashes Before Your Eyes", where it is heard in Desmond's bedroom. At live performances, Sarah explains the song as being "basically about the fact that we all... have insecurities to hide, and we often do that by putting on a façade." She also goes on to say that "unfortunately, if we just be who we are, that's usually the more attractive and beautiful thing." The song was first released on McLachlan's 1997 album Surfacing.
You come out at night
*Note: The album version uses the line "A beautiful fucked up man", while the radio edit uses "A beautiful but strange man."
