Scarlet Pimpernel the Musical - When I Look At You Lyrics

When I look at you
What I always see
Is the face of someone else
who once belonged to me.
Still, I can hear him laugh,
and even though that melody plays on,
he's gone.

When I look at you,
He is standing there.
I can almost breathe him in like summer in the air.
Why do you smile his smile?
That heaven I'd forgotten eases through in you.

If you could look at me once more,
With all the love you felt before -
If you and I could disappear into the past
And find that love we knew,
I'd never take my eyes away from you!

When I look at you,
He is touching me.
I would reach for him,
But who can hold a memory?
And love isn't ev'rything.
That moonlight on the bed will melt away some day!

Oh, you were once that someone
who I followed like a star.
Then suddenly you changed
And now I don't know who you are.
Or could it be
That I never really knew you from the start?

Did I create a dream?
Was he a fantasy?
Even a memory is paradise for all the fools like me ...
Now remembering is all that I can do,
Because I miss him so ...
When I look at you.
