Lover
When I see you now and then you mistake me.
Perhaps with gentle strokes you try to break me
But Iíd like to think that you have only missed me
Missed the many things you do and say to me.

Lover
Count the lonely nights Iíve spent without you
I wasnít just alone, I was without you.
I donít need very much, but not without you.
It gets worse when youíre near and Iím without you.

Lover
You have touched me once,
And you warmed me once,
And you left me once,
Or moved along your way.

Oh Lover
You took your touch away.
You took everything away.
Itís so cold I couldnít say.
Iím more lonely everyday.

Lover
Could you open up your eyes to see me.
Forget your second notion to deceive me.
And find a place within you to receive me,
A place within, besides a place beside you.

Lover
Undertake the labor of your recognition.
Reflect on what you see, not intuition.
Look deeper now, beyond your faint suspicion.
Or do you just ignore whatís deep inside me.

Lover
Could you open up your eyes to see me.
Your have no reason why you canít believe me
Can you find a place within you to receive me?
Youíve a place within, besides a place beside you.
