I don't love you
But I'm lost
Thinking of you
And the ghosts

Of so many special moments
That passed so quickly at the time
And now they come and track me down
And echo round and round and round

And time goes quickly
Or disappears completely
And I feel like I fade away
Like drowning

I don't need you
But it's so hard
To be without you
Though you're not far away

I censor my emotions
And tell myself to bide my time
But every time you come around
You batter my defenses down

But so gently
Like some sweet hypnosis
And the world just slips away
I'm drowning

It's dark
My heart is pounding
I'm sinking down
Into a pool of passion

There's laughter as I drown
Like so many lost before me
Damned by lust and gone to hell
And then I look into your eyes

And something melts
I shake inside
And cool water
Washes me all over

Washes me away
And still I'm drowning
