Like Alice through the looking glass
The things I saw weren’t really there
The words you spoke were backwards truths
You never knew the way I felt

Your words of want sustained me
Made me feel alive
Touching some place inside of me
I believed had long since died

The mind plays a wicked game
When it’s being lead solely by the heart
Once I found you in my life again
I wanted to believe we would never part

To have a little piece of you any way I could
My days became much brighter…less lonely were the nights

Like a dirty puddle on the floor
My heart to you I eagerly poured
The contentment I found within my soul
The truth of you crept in and stole

Maudlin prose of a lonely heart
Grasping for that long-lost ghost
The one that foretells my future...continually haunts my past
Time has a way of changing things
No matter how good…they never seem to last

Alone you’ve left me…stumbling in the dark
Was it the words I gave you from my heart

How could something that felt so real
Turn out to be an illusion surreal
You make me wonder who you are
And what it is you're thinking

Down the rabbit hole searching I go
looking for Alice...maybe she knows-
