through emerald glass
I can’t see more than you want to show me
I don’t see how you can control me
I can’t feel any more than
anything that you say is real

in your eyes
the sky is a vivid shade of sunset
I see myself and my soul reflected
in the mirror of your pain
the illusion of our lives
and I am falling again
into your crystal tears

tell me
that you don’t care and
that you just don’t know anymore
and tell me
everything that you’re hiding inside
everything that’s dying inside
behind your eyes

through emerald glass
some things remain
you left a stain on me but
through emerald glass
I can see that this too will pass.
