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
