102 You gave me too much presence of myself. I see myself with four attentive eyes -- Your eyes don't let me go, Don't let me stay -- I'm left alone between your eyes and mine. And when I see my face, I see my back -- I cannot turn away and hide from you. Your eyes pull me to you and push away -- I cannot rest, And yet I cannot move. And when I see my white -- I see my black, I see my every smile and every scar. I saw it all -- You need to take it back -- I need to lose myself inside your eyes.
