When You're Away

There are faces everywhere but I walk on
In the street the people don't look real to me
Again I am knocking on the door
But nobody's home
Am I the victim of some kind of sorcery?

When you're away, time passes slowly
When you're away, I feel so cold
When you are gone
There's a space you leave empty
When you're away from me

I hear voices everywhere but I walk on
I turn around but no one's standing next to me
Maybe the truth is before my eyes
But they don't see
Am I blinded by this veil of mystery

When you're away, time passes slowly
When you're away, I feel so cold
When you are gone
There's a space you leave empty
When you're away from me

When you're away I feel out of phase
A stranger in a land unknown
It's hard to believe you got this spell on me
Slipping through the night life
Going crazy in the street
The Mardi Gras or is it madness?
Are you behind a mask?
I can't hide from wondering where you are

When you're away, time passes slowly
When you're away, I feel so cold
When you are gone
There's a space you leave empty
When you're away from me
