Devics – If We Cannot See lyrics

You were born with a heart that can never be filled
And a head like snow that can never be still
There are streets paved with gold that shine so bright
But you force yourself to look away
If we can't see now we might never see
We only kill ourselves more slowly
If you can't find love than you will finally see
How we kill ourselves slowly
The words that fall from your mouth
They crystallize and break on the ground
And everything you want you don't have
But you force yourself to look away
If we can't see now we might never see
We only kill ourselves more slowly
If you can't find love than you will finally see
How we kill ourselves.... Slowly
If you can't find love
Than you can't find me
If you close your eyes
Than you will finally see
That you're already here with me

    Two people know well who the other is and what they are together. Both realise it. They are not together and perhaps the world is such that they never will be. Both realise it. He accepts what there is even though it cannot be seen or touched and he realises that what exists, exists without limit of time or distance or being visible to anyone else or not. On the other side of the world, she accepts what exists but cannot grasp it or see it before her so tries to find the same somewhere else with someone else, always unsuccessfully. When it goes wrong, she'll tell him. She always has. That's how they have been since 1978, or 1997, or 2014. One day, if he gets his ass in gear and she calms down, they'll meet somewhere rather than go on killing themselves slowly. Maybe then she'll realise she has been with him every day since 1978. And if they don't meet, what exists will still exist and he'll go on accepting it more calmly than she does.
