Lost In Me

And I thought I told you something,
I thought I told you all;
I thought that it would be so simple.
But when I see it true,
When I see you now;
I see that I was just a ripple.

And this is how I fall
And this is how I fall
This is how I fall through me.

It’s not as it’s always been
It’s not how it’ll always be
But it’s all I can ever see.

So hold me open
Hold me true
Hold me as I’ll never hold you.

And this is how I fall
And this is how I fall
This is how I fall through me.

So show me something special
Something I can lie
Something I know is true.

And I will throw myself,
And I will burn me;
Just to show that I do wish.
And I will take me,
And I will lose myself;
Just to have someone to miss.

And this is how I fail
And this is how I fail
This is how I fail to see,

And I see,
I see,
I see nothing ...
but me.
