Alzh & Imer

Light of my eyes, I wish you never looked at me like that again. Like I was an actor playing the same part over and over. I wish I could remember who you are and why I feel like I love you, but the truth is I’ve forgotten my own name.

My love, I wish you never looked at me like that again. Like you’ve never seen me before. I wish I could help you remember, and that’s what I do day after day, but I fear I’ll only want to remember you as you were once you’ve left me forever.
