See Myself

See Myself

music by Rick Mealey, Paula Naveda, Chris Stabile, and Josh Walsh

lyrics by Rick Mealey

 

Painting on a fragile face to show to all your friends

and hiding what the world will not allow

the love you knew had ended, the loss I knew remained

it led us down the road to be here now

what made you cling to me, what made me cling to you

so hard, but who cares why or how

what made the rain, what made the tree to grow

we’re here and that is all we need to know

 

yes, and without my speaking you know all my cares

when you are there I’m free to be myself

your arms around me and I’m feeling you

in healing you, oh, I can see myself

 

I see myself reflected in the way you see the world

reflected in your moods and in your eyes

the way we spend the quiet time and laugh beneath the sun

the way we shelter under rainy skies

to wait for love to enter, to always come up empty

to find it in our life is sweet surprise

what made the sun, what made the moon to glow

we’re here and that is all we need to know

 

yes, and without my speaking you know all my cares

when you are there I’m free to be myself

your arms around me and I’m feeling you

in healing you, oh, I can see myself

 

taking off the empty mask that got us through the day

it shatters late at night in mad debris

sleeping in an empty room across a hundred miles

I still can feel you holding, loving me

the sound of far-off laughter, the cadence yours and mine

I smile and revel in the mystery

what made our love, what made the pain to go

we’re here and that is all we need to know

 

yes, and without my speaking you know all my cares

when you are there I’m free to be myself

your arms around me and I’m feeling you

in healing you, yeah, I can see myself

and this is why, this is why

this is why, this is why I love you
