What Do You See Lyrics and Music by Ali Gilmore © 2012

 

What do you see

You people looking at me

Can you see beyond the image of what you want me to be

 

Can you see me turning

Yearning…

 

And what do you hear

When I’m talking and you’re standing near

Can you read between the babbling on what I hold dear

 

Can you feel me churning

Burning…

 

And how does it feel

When you realize it’s your heart I’ll steal

By sharing mine and baring mine we’re making a deal

 

To keep the secret of your churning,

The depths to which you are burning

The breadth of all our yearning…

 

What do you see

You people looking at me…
