You brushed my arm

Layered the charm on thick

I’d never met someone like you

It was easy to fall

To get crushed under the weight of your smile

I fought for your attention

Did everything I could to make you look

You led me on

Like a lovesick school girl

You let me follow

You let me fall

When I awoke to you

To who you are

I gave you a chance

I gave you a choice

You declined

You asked me to follow

You asked me to lose my sight

I said no

No, no, no

I wouldn’t waste my life

Chasing after a ghost

You walked away disappointed

You walked away and felt the regret settle in

Happy now

I don’t remember your face

Your voice

When you come looking again

You ask, “How’ve you been?”

I ask, “Who are you?”
