Flicking past the rows and lines,
Hovering behind closed blinds,
Wonder why I have an empty space,
Pictures pictures on the wall,
From your grand almighty ball,
I hide from view behind the window pain.
The one day we come back again,
Looking round to find a friend,
You pick me out and tell me in surprise:
"My my girl where have you been?
We missed you there, we missed you then."
I raise an eyebrow, turn and walk away.
Cos I know something you don't seem
Or want to realise,
Something that you tell yourself is false.
That once I'm out of eye-sight,
I've blended with the night,
It'll be as if I'd never existed
And that's my life, I know so well
My selfishness could never tell
That day by day I fade and fade away.
The night is calling, calling far,
Doesn't matter where we are,
You've closed your eyes so I am out of sight.
So when you're tired, at day's end,
Sending love to all your friends,
Remember me and the rest of me
You left behind.
