I thought it was you...

I thought it was you...

Today I heard your voice behind me
And turned to you with a smil.
Can't believe I misplaced that sound,
Even though it's been a while.

Yesterday I laughed out loud
And turned to tell you why.
Too late, I remembered the truth,
As a tear came to my eye.

Even now I see your face
And feel your arms holding me tight.
Yet your shadow flees at my touch
For I am alone tonight.

Someday I'll turn and you'll be there.
Your smile - your face - will be real
I'll put my arms around you and know-
This is the way love was meant to feel.
