Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can't seem to focus
And you don't seem to notice
I'm not here
I'm just a mirror

[Verse 2]
You check your complexion
To find your reflections
All alone
I had to go

[Pre-chorus]
Can't you hear me?
I'm not coming home
Do you understand?
I've changed my plans

[Chorus]
'Cause I, I'm in love with my future
Can't wait to meet her
And I, I'm in love, but not with anybody else
Just wanna get to know myself

[Bridge]
I know supposedly I'm lonely now (I'm lonely now)
I know I'm supposed to be unhappy without someone (someone)
But aren't I someone? (aren't I someone?)
I'd like to be your answer (be your answer)
'cause you're so handsome (so handsome)

[Pre-chorus]
But I know better
Than to drive you home
'Cause you'd invite me in
And I'd be yours again

[Chorus]
But I, I'm in love with my future
And you don't know her
And I, I'm in love, but not with anybody here
I'll see you in a couple years
