In the two months that have passed,
This room hasn’t changed so much at all,
I think that mirror might be new,
But there’s the same old pictures on the wall.
I see the bed still creaks a little,
It didn’t disturb a single night,
I have to turn away, grit my teeth
I have to close my eyes so tight.

There’s the couch where we’d sit together,
Do you remember all the drunken plans we made?
Then we’d fall asleep while watching tv,
I stroked your hair as the movie credits played.
A squirt of perfume brings back memories,
Of my hand in the small of your back,
As I wander through your closet,
Caressing each item on the rack.

Ah, invisibility.
You look right through me.
I’m here but you can’t see,
But I see you.
I’m your nightwatchman.

Seems wrong to rifle through silk garments,
That you keep in that old oak drawer,
It feels more wrong to feel their smoothness now,
Than when I’d seen them all before.
I know what’s in the wicker basket,
Its contents speak out of your sin,
I know I’d savour its sensations,
I know I’d love to dive right in.

Ah, invisibility.
You look right through me.
I’m here but you can’t see,
But I see you.
I’m your nightwatchman.

Does he turn you on like I used to?
Does he make you come like I used to?
Do you grasp your sheets so tight?
Scratch your nails down his back each night?

I hear your laughter from the front porch,
I hear the creaking of the door,
I hear him tell you how he loves you,
Like I told you so many times before.
I hide myself behind the curtain,
And I hear you both come inside,
You moved on quick, that’s for certain,
It’s only been two months since I died.
