How could it be that you know me
My deepest fears my fantasies
Confide in you what no one knows
But it feels so real

Chorus:
(when I close my eyes)
I can see your face
(when I lick my lips)
I can taste your smile
(when I see your name)
My heart starts to race
(if I cant read your thoughts)
Then I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
Whoa I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)

Is this a new way to love
Never face to face is it enough?
Does it really count or am I a fool?
So tell me please, am I wasting my time?

Your phrases
Descriptive
And through the textured words

With beauty
You post it
And use such colored verbs
Weve never met
Ooh

Chorus

Im rushin home to turn you on
Sometimes youre there sometimes youre gone
Wait for hours for your return
So tell me please, am I wasting my time?

Your phrases
Descriptive
And through the textured words

With beauty
You post it
And use such colored verbs

So tell me you think that maybe weve gone insane?
To find a, a lover and through the words of pain
Weve never met
Ooh

Chorus

When I lick my lips
I can taste your smile
My heart starts to race
I can taste your smile

Chorus

(when I close my eyes)
(when I close my eyes)
(when I close my eyes)
(when I close my eyes)

Damn, disconnected
