If I could live for 1000 years

If I could live
For a thousand years

I’d escape to the world where I am
I’d be the one that I am

The smudge on my glasses mocks me
Silently

But I thought I saw it out of the corner of my eye
Some of us don’t know why

I need to feel it
I need to be
I need to have it again
And I need to see

But it’s not what I am now
Not what I am to be
And you’re a shadow in a dream
And I’m a stranger lost in the rain

If I told you
I could live
For a thousand years
You’d scoff and scorn
