I can't see you when I look at you

Only see you in my memory

When I find you it's just outside my sight line

Between experience and fantasy

Don't bear up to close inspection

Close inspection of the cold hard facts

Blow in and out of my life like a spirit

My eye can't see you but my mind reacts

Only a vision in the corner of my eye

Only a vision that I see out of the corner of my eye

Only a vision

Said you loved me

Heard that plain as day

I should lose this

Vision fade away

What's holding on to me

Just some state of mind

Feelings coming on

One more time

Close inspection

I've checked this out again and again

And it wont respond to cold hard facts

Then you blow in and out of my life like a spirit

My mind knows better but my heart reacts

Only a vision in the corner of my eye

Only a vision that I see out of the corner of my eye

Only a vision girl

I wish that vision that I'm seeing was real
