I can’t feel pain I can’t feel me
but somehow my heart still feels thee
but suddenly this feeling sank inside
I am here and you’re not by my side
I stare at the clock as it steals our time
cut its hands as it commits that crime
feeling so far away from where you are
these oceans have just torn us apart
in moments of joy and sorrow
I want you today and every tomorrow
tears trickle down when I don’t see you around
I call you out but I hear no sound
so I search my heart, I search my soul
I find you there so I search no more
now all of a sudden you feel so near
and it’s your smile that I now wear
embed inside our memories as one
a lost feeling, triumph at once
the long distances suddenly closed in
as I realized you live within. . . . .
