I've grown accustomed to his face

I've grown accustomed
To the tune that he whistles night and noon

Like breathing out and breathing in

I'm very grateful he's a man and so easy to forget
Rather like a habit one can always break
And yet, I've grown accustomed
To the trace of something in the air

Accustomed to his face
