When I look at you
What I always see
Is the face of someone else
who once belonged to me
Still I can hear him laugh
And even though that melody plays on
He's gone


When I look at you
He is standing there
I can almost breathe him in
Like summer in the air!
Why do you smile his smile?
That heaven I'd forgotten eases through
In you


If you could look at me once more
With all the love you felt before-
If you and I could disappear into the past
And find that love we knew
I'd never take my eyes away from you


When I look at you
He is touching me
I would reach for him
But who can hold a memory
And love isn't everything
That moonlight on the bed will melt away
Some day


Oh you were once that someone
Who I followed like a star
Then suddenly you changed
And now I don't know who you are!
Or could it be
That I never really knew you from the start?


Did I create a dream?
Was he a fantasy?
Even a memory is paradise for all the fools like me!
Now remembering is all that I can do
Because I miss him so
When I look at you
