Lyrics, open to the reader's interpretation. Let me know what you think.
Suffering from your intoxication
Taking up all my concentration
Maybe we’re not part of fate
Or maybe comfort’s calling late

Breathe me stories in my ear
Tell me what I want to hear
Empty my breath of all its meaning
Adore me till I’m almost screaming

I’m mesmerized when I look at you
A brand new light that I’m drawn to

But it’s only a photograph
A shiny secret on my behalf
Sometimes it seems
You’re just in my dreams
Just cruel taunts of my memory
Reality’s my enemy

My heart’s a special kind of glass
It was shattered in the past
But when I look in the broken mirror
I see myself a great deal clearer

I’m trapped in your sweet delusion
Surrounded by my own confusion
A thousand words you never said
Echo loud inside my head

I’m mesmerized when I look at you
A dazzling light that I’m drawn to

But it’s only a photograph
A shiny secret on my behalf
Sometimes it seems
You’re just in my dreams
Just cruel taunts of my memory
Reality’s my enemy

I’m standing at denial’s gate
There’s nothing I’ll appreciate
Trading my sanity for infatuation
The journey ends in isolation

The unloved star begins to fade
Wondering why you never stayed
I didn’t get a chance to shine
Didn’t get to make you mine.
