i found myself in the stangest places

in the darkest of corners

in stranger's faces

and when i returned from who i was

i couldn't be sure

i was that anymore

i danced alone at the break of dawn

when i turned to look

they'd all gone

i saw my reflection

in surfaces that didn't shine

and when i knew that it was there

i wasn't sure that it was mine

i saw my absence in the strangest way

in people i did not know

in places i never stayed

and when i heard your empty sighs

i marveled they had ever gotten

as empty as your eyes

i heard your voice in the rambling south

from the wandering wind

from a stranger's mouth

and when i tried to say

the words that you once said

i found there was nothing of mine left

only yours instead
