The Way I See You

The way I see you
Is through a heavy haze
I glimpse enough to know
That it is you

From there I build you
Into the woman I want
Hoping every moment
You will be the woman I knew

Every time I do this
I find myself in tears
Nothing in this present
Can equal that past

Like a burning moth
I return again and again
Trusting that I missed something
In my reconstruction of you

I repeatedly buy into the lie
I have of the love we shared
Expecting everything to be the same
As you materialize from the haze
