Seeing

How can I love you I don't even know you
How can I answer a question like that
How can I help you to shake this delusion
Why can't you realise one simple fact

How can you look but never never see
Hear but not listen know but not understand
How can you know how much this takes from me
We cannot stay here come on take my hand

How can I understand your world
I can't say I understand mine
You'll just have to hold on and trust me
We're fast running out of time

How can we see this rationally
How can we work this out
I'm not who you think so let go of me
I'm not even remotely like that

I see me you see her what is this place?

Someone mistakes Talia for their lover, when she finds them after a cave-in at an archeological dig.
