Two eyes staring back at me
From a magazine in my room
Cut out paper tragedies
Paper tragedies that I glue
Show up cause of memory
If it only feels black and blue?
Creating a fantasy
Something I can dream
That is true

I will only look away
If you say
If you say

I don't see it
Another message left for me in code
Hieroglyphics
I never figured out how to
Unfold your paper crane's origami agony
I ripped the edges
It gave me pleasure
Figuring it out
Each question in a shroud
It's been forever, wasn't forever

I will only look away
If you say
If you say

Now when I close my eyes I see how much I've lost
From scratching a memory 'til all the colors off
Revealing a jagged line still there in black and white
When I close my eyes
If I close my eyes
But I can't laugh about it yet
It's all too soon
The things we used to joke about have all come true
I had to slowly back away

I will only look away
If you say
If you say

I will never look away
When you say
