"I Know" as written by Shawn Carter and Pharrell Williams....
I know I'll never see you/I know I'll never run into your body walking through the crooked streets/I know I'll never hear you/I know I'll never hear you like a sound that wafts inside from outside there/I know that if I waited I know that if I wait a thousand days will lie wasted with thoughts of you/my love I've pictured this:/your violet eyelids opened to say "here's where you've been"/your lips open to say "my darling it's been so very long and I'm in pain"/I know I'll never feel you/I know I'll never get so close to you that I can't smell anything else/I know that it is raining/and I know that the rain will soak you through/and leave you like the tattered sky/ I know I go in circles/I know that window panes bring only rain and not your face/ my love I've pictured this:/your violet eyelids opened to say "here's where you've been"/ sometimes I picture all your fingers/sometimes they're crawling down my spine/sometimes they're buttoning your jacket/sometimes you're far but you're still mine/ sometimes I picture all your fingers/sometimes they're crawling down my spine/sometimes they're buttoning your jacket/sometimes you're far but you're still mine/ I know I go in circles/I know that window panes bring only rain and not your face

    General Commentugh I just love this but it's so sad and true. It's pretty self explanatory, but it applies to my life a lot right now having an extremely hard time letting go of someone and just imagining I will see them again, knowing I won't.
    "sometimes i picture all your fingers
    sometimes they're crawling down my spine"...that line gives me chills
