SONGWRITING

Xenophile*

By: Laura Alford

What is this called
This time out of time
When I see myself
In eyes
Eyes that aren’t mine

Saw a kindred spirit
Waiting at the D-M-V
We didn’t speak
But I could see
I see we fit
I see we’re the same
I see us click
And never knew her name

Saw my soul mate
Flying out the A-T-L
We didn’t speak
But I can tell
I can tell in a second
I can tell with a glance
I can tell in a heartbeat
That we would dance

What is this called
This time out of time
When I see myself
In eyes
Eyes that aren’t mine

Saw myself
At the C-V-S
Trying on shades
In mirrored glass
I see she knows my story
I see she knows my mind
I see she knows my soul
Because her life is mine

What is this called
This time out of time
When I see myself
In eyes
Eyes that are mine
