Just go away and let me sleep, stop crawling back into my mind
You said you wanted out of my life
But now you just torture me all night
Maybe this is retribution for all the pain I caused you
Because I was supposed to always stay beside you
Instead you're somebody I said goodbye to
Now I just contemplate sending words your way
But what the hell would I say?
You left me with nothing but my pride, and I'm not about to throw the only thing I have left away
So do you come back to haunt me in case I find some peace in my life?
You'll remind me that I left you behind
And I'll never know sleep until I make things right?
Or maybe you're just a projection of the darkest parts of my mind
That won't let me forget my loneliness
And makes me see your face every time I long to feel your fingers intertwine with mine
You won't let me sleep but I'd rather face nightmares than this cruel reality
