IF I COULD SEE YOU
[E. Maguire]
______________________________
I met a man with a hand on his face
I said what hell are you hiding from
And he said I just can’t stand this sense of space
And my hand is my hiding place and I said
If I could see you the way you see yourself
I wouldn’t recognise you

I met a woman, she had eyes that burned
I said what light are you looking for
And she said I blinked before and I missed my turn
And I think it’s all too late to learn and I said
If I could see you the way you see yourself
I wouldn’t recognise you

I wouldn’t recognise you the way you see yourself
I don’t recognise you the way you see yourself

I met a girl with a curling smile on her face
I said for what good reason are you so happy
She said I have no reason, just a feeling inside
Cos right here and right now I’m pleased to be alive
I said if I could see you the way you see yourself
I wouldn’t recognise you
