What am I to you?

Another child on the street?

Am I that person you pass
That you see yourself in?

Do you see smile at nothing
And wonder if I’m crazy?

When I close my eyes
Do you wonder
What is passing though
The theatre that is my mind?

Am I that person
That enflames a curiosity?

Do you wish your knew me?
Do you wish you were my best friend?

Am I another textbook case?
Or the most unique person you could fin?

Will you ever know
About the world inside of me?

Am I that girl
That will never change?
That girl without a soul
The one who you
Pretend doesn’t bother you

What am I to you?
What are you to me?
