I thought I saw you in this boy

But he was lost and had to go away

He did the time

Tried to come back

But it was too late

He said I do

If only she knew

I thought I found you in forever

But forever is gone and so are you

I broke your heart and left you for dead

The same way you left me night after night

He painted a picture

But he was no artist

I thought I found you in this man

But he was scared and ran away

From time to time

He lingers around

I pay him no mind

Has something to tell me

The sweetest thing he’s ever known

Still he can’t get over me

I thought I saw you

You gave me a glimpse

You loved my hips

Night after night

You traded in my scent

From one day to the next

I did the time

But you gave her the laughs

You were my muse

You gave my art life

You ignited the fire

That set me off

Don’t you forget

They always come back

I thought I found you in these men

Searched high and low

Cried me a river

Just to lead me to your ocean

Looked up at sky and asked over and over…

Dear god, why doesn’t he love me?

Why can’t he see me?

Who do I have to be?

She looked me in the face

I felt a warm embrace

Found you deep within.
