DAVIE VILLAGE POST Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada LGBTQ2+ Hub

Eli Lieb & Steve Grand in “Look Away”

Look Away

I’ll never touch your body again
We gave it our all, but this is the end
So we say that we tried
Watching you fade, I know it’s goodbye

But I can’t look away from you
I can’t look away
I’m trying to face the truth
from the mess that we made
So we say that we tried
But I can’t look away from you
I can’t look away

I miss watching you sleep
You scent on my sheets
Such a bitter-sweet, beautiful mind
haunting my dreams
So I know you’ll be fine, say “it’s alright”
Watching you fade, cause this is goodbye

 

But I can’t look away from you
I can’t look away
I’m trying to face the truth
from the mess that we made
So we say that we tried
But I can’t look away from you
I can’t look away

I’ll be okay, are you okay?
Thinkin’ about the way that we left this
Will I grow to regret it
Watching you fade
I know it’s goodbye

But I can’t look away from you
I can’t look away
I’m trying to face the truth
from the mess that we made
So we say that we tried
But I can’t look away from you
I can’t look away
