When I See You

A shadow
A telephone pole
On the wall beside your bed
A streetlight
Out of sight
In the window above your head

Your outstretched arms
Crown of thorns
Leave me by your feet
And you eyes
Your wind-swept eyes
Leave me no place to hide

When I see you
Seeing me
Being you
Being me
When I see you

The dream
Never seemed so real
When I'm here
The wind calls
The snow falls
Covering our footsteps down the street

Your heart
Beats like a prayer
There's no one there
To hear
You are alone
You are free
So why do I say, "Forgive me"?

When I see you
When I see you
Seeing me
Being you
Being me

When I see you
When I see you
I see you
