I Can't See Myself Anymore

by Thomas K. Hunt

I can’t see myself anymore
That’s someone else inside my door
He unrecognizable to me
I’m wondering who can that be

I think he hides behind my mirror
I look for me but he always appears
I can’t seem to get away from him
I keep seeing him again and again

I can’t see myself anymore
I can’t remember what I’m looking for
I don’t remember what I look like
I was wondering if you just might

I can’t escape this grave impostor
I turn around and he’s on my side of the door
He’s taken over every part of me
He’s taken my youth and so much more

I can’t see myself anymore
Left are only photos preserved from a lifetime before
This old man that’s invaded my life, stole my looks and married my wife
He doesn’t look like me and that’s for sure
I can’t see myself anymore

This wasn’t just a gradual thing
I turned around and I was older than me
Don’t get me wrong it’s not over yet
The best is yet to come and that’s a solid bet
