Washing over me with every notion
Every touch and feeling
Leaves me reeling
How can it be?
That you have this effect on me.
We are not what each other needs.
I try and fight to be free.
But you pull me back
My mind under attack
With a single kiss
You’re hard to not miss
We are volatile
Making our attempts futile
The definition of crazy
Doing something over and over again till we are hazy
When I see the light
It doesn’t seem right
An attraction so deep
so hard to keep
I guess with love
There is so much more than the above.
I still can’t say your name,
Look at your picture or touch your things.
There is a pain in my heart
That makes it hard to breathe.
I try to remember what you were like,
The sound of your voice or the way that you laughed.
But in the end my head is empty
With nothing but a distant memory.
Memories are what hold people together
But for you and me that won’t be seen.
For you and I could be strangers in a crowd
Too much time past for us to recognize.
So I can only live on people’s stories
But even that was 15 years of avoiding
For seeing your life through other’s eyes
Only left me aching.
Hearing how we are alike,
That I have your nose, smile and laugh.
Only makes the thought of you
Even more heartbreaking.
For at the age of 6,
I was Daddy’s Girl.
For at the age of 7,
I was just a girl.
