Empty Eyes

I remember when we said goodbye,
I remember your dark eyes,
I see them in my tea,
I see them down the street,
I see them in the soil that will bring up new trees,
I see them in my dreams,
Begging me to leave.


I don't see them anymore in my empty cup,
I don't see them in these empty streets,
I don't see them in the real world.

I remember when she said hello,
I remember her bright eyes,
I see them offering me her shiny blue world,
I see them as oceans,
I see them as a bright blue sky,
I see them in my hoodie,
Poking a hole right through.


I don't see them in my drink,
I don't see them down the road,
I don't see them in my sleep.
