This heat passes over

The surface of my skin

It leaves my veins cold

Because it's not really there

I feel the touch

That I've been deprived of

All my life

~*~

This voice whispers in my ear

Chanting sweet nothings

It leaves me deaf

Because no one's actually talking

It's the voice I've been dying to hear

All my life

~*~

These eyes haunt me in my sleep

Promises hidden beneath the color

It makes my own eyes water

Because I can't really see them

They're the eyes I haven't seen

All my life

~*~

This person is in my mind

And I think he's my future

But then my heart begins to ache

Because I haven't met him.

He's the love I've been looking for

All my life
