I Know

I Know by Trespassers William

I know I’ll never see you
I know I’ll never run into your body walking through the crooked streets
I know I’ll never hear you
I know I’ll never hear you like a sound that wafts inside from outside there
I know that if i waited i know that if i wait a thousand days will lie wasted with thoughts of you
My love i’ve pictured this:
Your violet eyelids opened to say “here’s where you’ve been”
Your lips open to say “my darling it’s been so very long and i’m in pain”
I know I’ll never feel you
I know I’ll never get so close to you that i can’t smell anything else
I know I’ll never see you
I know that where you go i’ll still be far from where you are
My love I’ve pictured this:
Your violet eyelids opened to say “here’s where you’ve been”
Your lips open to say “my darling it’s been so very long and i’m in pain” sometimes i picture all your fingers
Sometimes they’re crawling down my spine
Sometimes they’re buttoning your jacket
Sometimes you’re far but you’re still mine
I know that it is raining
And I know that the rain will soak you through
And leave you like the tattered sky
I know I go in circles
I know that window panes bring only rain and not your face
Sometimes I picture all your fingers
Sometimes they’re crawling down my spine
Sometimes they’re buttoning your jacket
Sometimes you’re far but you’re still mine
I know that it is raining and
I know that the rain will soak you through and leave you like the tattered sky
I know i go in circles
I know that window panes bring only rain and not your face
