The Way You Love Me

I can’t see you, but I can feel you
all around, like an ambient sound
Like the air you’re there, transparent to the eye,
still present enough to make your way inside



I really cant say when I noticed you first,
but when I realized that I satisfied
a thirst of some kind, it flattened me
to the extent that I let your love roam free



It’s the way that you love me in that
distant kind of way,
that makes you close to me
I just can’t get away



Whenever I attempt to
break myself free from you,
you materialize, opaque to the eye,
tracing me ‘til there’s no place left to hide



It’s the way that you love me in that
possessed kind of way,
that makes you close to me
I just can’t get away



Finally, it’s clear to me that
you’re eternal like the sun is eternal
Is that how I make you feel?
Is that why you won’t let me be?



I can never love you the way that you love me
It’s really hard to love when all you want to be is free



It’s the way that you love me in that
final kind of way,
that makes you close to me
I just can’t get away
