I can see you everywhere
I can't escape you
and I'm not sure I really want to anyway.

I can feel you in my sleep
I can't stop dreaming
and sometimes I don't ever want to wake up.

I can hear you in the wind
I can't ignore the sounds
and I know you're blowing right into my soul.

I can taste you on my lips
I can't remove the salt
and I want to devour what it is you know.

I can smell you on my skin
I can't remember your face
and I need someone to give you life again.
