Context & Lyrics
The actress Marguerite cannot understand her husband Percy’s change in behavior.
Is the face of someone else
Still I can hear him laugh
And even though that melody plays on,
When I look at you
I can almost breathe him in
Why do you smile his smile?
That heaven I’d forgotten eases through,
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,
I would reach for him,
And love isn’t everything
That moonlight on the bed will melt away,
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
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,
