You walk the streets during the day,
whole crowds could pass right through you
because you've ceased being in the way.
You let your eyes glaze over, you let your face fade,
your molecules aren't quite as close as they used to be.

So when the sun goes down that old search begins,
for someone who can see you when the light is dim.
When the night is young the red lights go on
A ghost needs her form to be more than fog
And when the memory is strong it turns the mist that it hangs in
into arms, legs, and head-
and now you've got a body again.

Hold his face in your hands and feel the backs of your eyes grow warm
Feel the cascade of sensation pushing out from your spinal cord
There's something hot within your ribcage,
something moving in your stomach once more.

Your nerves are working but your eyes are shut
Thirsting in the desert, a cool spring has reached your tongue
The water is real, the water is oh so real:
you're the mirage, little one-
but you've got a body again.
There's fur in the fence like the earth your foot has pressed.
