I know you like my own shadow
You warm my cold hands
You are there with your hand on my shoulder

Sometimes you expand and grow unrealistic,
And I have to let you go until you return to a sensible size
You make me see, you make me blind
I believe in you, then I turn my back.
But you will never stop coming
You are the cold wind,
You are the warm sunshine on my face

That paces impatiently,
Waiting for me to become you,
