I know you like the way I smell

Like every girl you've ever dreamed of

Like oxygen, you need to breathe of

So, when you slip beside me

When your intentions are behind me

So innocent, like we used to be

I lean so carefully

Against the current, towards unknown

A subtle shift, two steps closer to you

I can see right through now that I'm here

Very far but physically near and

I hope you haven't blown your chance

To get a sniff

Of lost romance

To catch a whiff

Of that unhinging ghost

Of me, the one you miss the most.
