How can you say you never see me,
When I’m standing right in front of you?
It’s not my fault you only see what you want to see.
Only hear what you want to hear.
Only do what you want to do.
I try to make you see
Make your blind eyes notice me.
But to you it makes no difference.
You only see what you want to see.
I’m not on the screens
You hold to you so dearly.
I’m not the entertainment.
I’m not the gleam in your eyes.
While that may be here today,
I will be gone tomorrow.
And by the time you finally look up,
I will be long gone,
Because you only see what you want to see
And that was never me.
