When I Look At You

This song is by Linda Eder and appears on the album Storybook (2003).

When I look at you
What I always see
Is the face of someone else who once belonged to me
Still I can hear him laugh
And even though that melody plays on
Hes gone

When I look at you
He is standing there
I can almost breathe him in
Like summer in the air
Why do you smile his smile
That heaven had forgotten is it true
In you

If you could look at me once more
With all the love you felt before
If you and I could dance into the past
And find that love we knew
I'd never take my eyes away from you

When I look at you
He is touching me
I would reach for him
But who can hold a memory
And love isn't every thing
That moonlight on the bed will melt away

Oh you were once that someone
Who I followed like a star
Then suddenly you changed
And now I don't know who you are
Or could it be
That I never really knew you from the start

Did I create a dream?
Was he a fantasy?
Even a memory is paradise for all the fools like me
Now remembering is all that I can do
Because I miss him so,
When I look at you
