I know what you're looking for
You've looked in these eyes before
And all you saw was blue green water
Searching for a mirror
That would show the world not who you are
But who you wanna be
And you thought you'd found that one in me
But it's been a long time since I heard that name

He doesn't live here anymore
Don't know where he's residing
you can wait here if you want
But I don't think he's coming back
He doesn't live here anymore

Sure you've found the right place
The same address you knew before
But that won't change what lies behind the door
And what lies underneath had to change from the inside out

He doesn't live here anymore
Don't know where he's residing
I think it's better if you go
Cause I don't want him coming back

Yes I know the name sounds a little bit familiar
Like a melody to a dream
Yes I know he wore the same face, the same clothes
But that was so long ago

I know who you want to find
Somewhere is the memory of somebody I left behind
Well lets take it all in stride
Yeah it's that time to say goodbye
He doesn't live here anymore
