I’m thinking that maybe I shouldn’t be

It’s 4am and I can’t sleep

Is this common or just common insanity

Why do these memories haunt me

 

You’re gone and been that way for so long

I thought that by now I’d have moved on

I’m stuck in this place and my mind can’t erase

Your beautiful face so girl go in grace and

 

Don’t haunt me, Don’t haunt me

Tried so hard to get over you yeah I’ve done my best

So baby girl if you hear me grant me one last request and

Don’t haunt me, Don’t haunt me

 

Wish I could turn back time, rewind, wake up findin

That I still had you and your love was still mine

I’m driven insane tryin’ to reason with why, it is

I can’t have you back or just out of my mind

This madness is tearin’ every shred of me apart

I’ve tried letting you go, let go of my heart

You’ve turned it against me cause I sleep and I dream

That you keep comin’ back but you won’t don’t haunt me

 

I tremble if I think to deep

On the details of your memory

The sound of your voice or the smell of your hair

I faintly feel like you’re following me everywhere

 

I wake up at night to the taste of your lips

My mind so diluted that I’ll reach for your hips

Only to find this lonely emptiness

Breathing on my forlorn fingertips

 

Don’t haunt me, Don’t haunt me

Tried so hard to get over you yeah I’ve done my best

So baby girl if you hear me grant me one last request and

Don’t haunt me, Don’t haunt me
