We Stare
© 2005 Jason Paul Johnston

She stares into a cup - Of paper empty now
I know just how she feels, But I'm not sure just how
She stares into my eyes, The contact makes me see
That I am someone nice, That I just might be real

And though I can see out And stare up from the ground
She reaches out her hand And in the touch I'm found

Every day I see her now - And I can't live without
No I can't live without - Each day I see her now

I stare into a wall - Of concrete looking off
It's painted with some tears - It's peeling from my loss
I close my eyes to stop - The emptiness I see
But all I get is dark - And all I feel is steel

And so many people hunger - It's so hard to feel
So many people hunger - So hard to feed
So many with without - But it's so hard to give what's real
so many lights are blinding – so hard – to even – see....
