All I Hear, All I See

What is this?
What did you do to me?
Everywhere I look,
All I see.
I see a face in a crowd,
and for a brief moment it's yours.
I hear a voice stand above the ambient sound, saying my name out loud,
And I swear it's yours.
I can almost guarantee that once I turn around that you'll be the one I see.
And once In a while I'll be having a good day and it really is you calling me,
But most of the time I'm not that lucky.
It's not that I don't like seeing the face of another friend,
But when I don't see you, my hopes for the moment just come to an end.
And for just a quick second I think "ok, that just ruined my day, don't talk to me."
It's like being shot through the heart, then through the head, yet still kept alive, just left for dead.
All because it wasn't you calling out for me.

All because it wasn't you that said "HEY ______!"

I'm aware I left the last word out. I only write anonomously, so think of it as a guessing game.
