Lying here listening to the rain and the thoughts in my brain
Wondering where I went wrong and how far I’ve come in vain
She said she had a dream that changed her life
But evidently, her’s never caused any strife
And it seems to me you keep falling for me in different bodies
She shares my birthday and she looks at you like you put the stars in the sky
But I’ve been feeling this for years and I never told you why
She’s on TV and she loves the spotlight
As for me, I never wanted that life
But if you ask me, your name has always been up in lights in my mind
If I showed myself now, would you look away?
Would you instantly know that you’ve made a mistake?
Facing you now would be agonizing
As I gaze into everything I let slip away
All you’d so easily walk away from
I can’t shake you because you changed my life
Now you’re about to make a mistake
And call her your wife
I have no place in telling you otherwise
So I’ll have to endure your storm one last time
But if by some miracle, it doesn’t work out
You won’t be alone in this,
If you can hear me shout
I tell people I’m fine
But I’m really not
How can you explain this,
To someone who’s never gone without?
Your name has been engraved on my heart,
In my bones
At the tip of my tongue.
You just held me in different bodies
And now the emptiness eats away at me
You’ve been loving me in different bodies
And everyone gets to be held but me.
“Keeping the ghost alive
I just won’t let it die
Please linger for awhile
Flash me that familiar smile
I loved you as strange as it seems”
Haunt me, pretend you want me”
