I wrote your name in the steam and now I'm watching it disappear 

I like to remind myself that nothing lasts 

I like to keep in mind that everything disappears and everything leaves

I hope one day that will be so deeply rooted into my brain,

That I'll be branded with reality. 

So, finally, I will be able to stop loving you

But everytime you've almost faded, I find myself retracing the bittersweet letter of your name. 

I can't let you go. Not yet. 

Something in me still thinks you can last forever. 

It thinks you won't disappear, it thinks you'll stay. 

How silly. I have to turn away from it. 

It will keep burning my chest 

The way your eyes do when they meet mine 

I think I forgot to make you stay 

I can't find your name 

I think your gone..
