I'm looking through you, where did you go?
I thought I knew you, what did I know?
You don't look different, but you have changed
I'm looking through you, you're not the same

Your lips are moving, I cannot hear
Your voice is soothing, but the words aren't clear
You don't sound different, I've learned the game
I'm looking through you, you're not the same

Why, tell me why, did you not treat me right?
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight

You're thinking of me, the same old way
You were above me, but not today
The only difference is you're down there
I'm looking through you, and you're nowhere

Why, tell me why, did you not treat me right?
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight

I'm looking through you, where did you go
I thought I knew you, what did I know
You don't look different, but you have changed
I'm looking through you, you're not the same

Yeah
Oh baby I'm changed
Ah I'm looking through you
Yeah I'm looking through you

    To me, its about how a girl and a guy (maybe one of the beatles possibly?) fell in love but in just a short time one of them wanted out of it. And that one doesn't have a reason why, he/she just doesn't want it anymore. Its that kind of moment when at times, the one person you thought could bring you the biggest happiness in your life ends up becoming the thing that truly despises you (similar to the meaning of she f*cking hates me by puddle of mudd. Also a very good song by the way.) love sometimes is a blessing but it can also be the knife in your back that is just begging to be turned. But this is all speculation. I don't know if this is the true meaning of this song. It just seems to fit though. This is merely just an opinion.
