When You’re Missing Someone You Know Will Never Come Back

I think I see your face
and I think I see your face
and I think I see your face

you’re not gone
not on a trip
you haven’t changed
your address
or your phone number

and I think I see your face
and I think I see your face
and I think I see your face

but faces are
alive
and you’re…

No matter how badly I wish it
and want it and long for it
and think about it
and pretend it isn’t true
and picture your face
and imagine your face

and I think I see your face
and I think I see your face
and I think I see your face

but faces are
alive
and you’re…

not

and I know
I will never
see your face
again
