The second time I barely even saw you there at all.
And all the dreams and fantasies that put you to the test.
I take the faintest outline, and my heart fills in the rest.
Will I need you like the brand new morning sun
Or will I grow to hate you, like all the other ones?
What I think you are is all I see
And as long as you're a stranger
As long as you're a stranger
You'll stay perfect to me
Every night a lonely fight for something to be clear.
I turn the page of dreary days and that's when you appear.
So I build you up in little clay constructions in my head
And I like what I see.
I used to seek within the crowd a place for me to hide.
Or look in every eye and try to find myself inside.
But in all this confusion, I have finally seen the light.
I've never known a person like the you I know tonight.
