I stare into you and see a reflection
but what I see is so far from perfection
the object of no one’s affection
Who is this girl?
so full of pain are her eyes
blinded by careless whispers
screaming echoes and silent cries
I stare into you
and see a tainted heart and shattered dreams
such a melancholy spirit
so sad and lonely she seems
Possessing the traits of an angel too quickly fallen
haunted by her past
and covered in sin
Unable to escape the heartache buried so deep within
I stare into you as you stare into me
almost afraid of the truths you force me to see
Are you my friend or my enemy?
Do you help or hurt me?
The longer we stare at each other
the answers become clearer
I need you
to love me, to hate me, to see me
