I'm afraid to close my eyes
Afraid to hear phones ringing just to realise
That the words on the other side might just break my heart
And we don't have the technology to fix something like this
These words on the other side will break my heart
I have been dreaming for years
About these imposters trying to pose like you
But such bright smiles, those eyes and hands like these are not easy to confuse
And believe me I've tried to replace everything I lose
But such bright smiles, those eyes and hands like these are not that easy to confuse
And believe me I've tried to replace everything I lose
We tried with words but words so easily fail
And now I can't find the strength to fight it or the courage to take to blow

    General CommentI'm afraid to close my eyes
    Afraid to hear phones ringing just to realise
    The words on the other side
    Your first sigh might break my heart
    And we don't have the technology to fix something like this
    These words on the other side
    These words will break my heart
    And I have been dreaming for years
    About these imposters, they're trying to pose like you
    Since bright smiles and eyes and hands like these
    are not that easy to confuse
    And believe me when I've tried to replace the things I lose
    With bright smiles and eyes and hands like these
    I'm not that easy to confuse
    And believe me when I've tried to replace the things I lose
    with words so easily fail
    with words so easily fail


    I think the above is more correct. I think it's about someone replacing someone they used to love, or someone that died.
