Some of the lyrics suggest use of 'automatic writing' [link] or 'cut-up' [link] techniques: for example, 'call me even when you don't / if only from pictures / it having been three years / They follow me in all my dreams'.
These lyrics actually follow the theme of the song, which is the protagonist's ex-lover's eyes. These "strange eyes" call to the protagonist, long after the ex-lover himself has stopped calling (phoning). And they call him from photos, presumably the only remnants of the relationship that ended years earlier. Hence the hard realisation: "Oh God, I'm still in love with you.."
The line "what did they see in me?", refers to the eyes, rather than the ex-lover himself.
