The Innocent One

I was walking down a narrow lane But then I saw something strange Into the water crystal clear Was someone with a daunting gaze Well i thought it's me who's thinking weird For sure my mind is not in right state No matter how many excuses I made I couldn't ignore that piercing stare She was beautiful with a calm face Curiosity filled big black eyes Though I knew it would be lame Still I waved at her anyway Now you'll wondering what happened next Well she just mirrored my every movement The atmosphere oozed with certain tension And yeah, it was my own reflection My foggy sight due to world's hardships and games Is to be blamed for tricking me again Cause the girl I saw in the water Was pure inside without any stains It's true I am free in the open sky But I am limited with infinite chains Though god gave me wings to fly But they trapped me in the cage Looks like I lost her in the crowd Hidden somewhere in my brain Although she looks safe and sound I wonder when I'll meet her again...
