I’m waiting for it to pass
This feeling that I cant last
Until you see me
See me really,
For who I am
A woman in love with a man
Oblivious to this scene
Like a parallel world floating beneath
Where every word you say
Is locked away and saved
Feasted on the lonely days.
In my dreams we’re never friends
In my dreams I’ve found the strength
To tell you how I feel
To make my thoughts real
And so we’re lovers in my sleep
But the mornings make me weep
When I wake up
And I hate to wake up
As the plummet to earth is so deep.
And so each day stretches like a suspension bridge
With every hour a link
That places me further away from you
And you from me too
As nothing lasts forever
And time, however clever
Cannot preserve what was never really there
Your eyes, your lips, your hair
Were only ever touched in my imagination
Where I built a situation
That may never come true.
I fear for my memory too
As this feeling may fade
The fire turn grey
With only ashes to remain.
And what if I forget your eyes?
Or the curls that always seemed so surprised
To be on such a beautiful head.
What if I remain lonely instead?
Never seeing this hunger fed.
