Remember when she was a fever dream?
An apparition passing like a drug
Through your bloodstream
Elusive and impossible to touch
Sometimes appearing almost real
And sometimes not so much
You toss and turn the night away
Open up your sleepless eyes
‘Cause you’ve seen enough of her
To last the day

Same room, different window
Maybe find some other angle on the scene
Same room, different window
Nothing’s changed but how it looks
If you know what I mean

Remember when she was a lighted fuse?
Inching closer to you
When you had everything to lose
Explosive and impossible to hold
She stoked the fire
While doing her best to leave you cold

Same room, different window
Over here, the cracks are clear behind the sheen
Same room, different window
Nothing’s changed but how it looks
Do you know what I mean?

Remember when she was a nagging doubt?
A pointed question cutting
From the inside slowly out
But it never mattered
And how could it matter?
In the end, she was the wind
That made a whisper of your shout

Same room, different window
Separate corners and the distance in between
Same room, different window
Nothing’s changed but how it feels
If you know what I mean
Do you know what I mean?
