Lyrics

I see the image of you
It's burned into my mind's eye
Manifesting in somebody else's body
I sense the person of you
It's singed off all of my nerves
Emanating from somebody else's aura

I don't think I could ever escape you
I don't think that I want to escape you
If I could, then I wouldn't keep running away

I feel the passion of you
Burning all my desire
Forcing me to lust after reminders of you
I love the spirit of you
It's overtaking my soul
Turning me into somebody else's nightmare

I don't think I could ever escape you
I don't think that I want to escape you
If I could, then I wouldn't keep running away

I don't want to need you
And I don't need to have you
And I don't have to want you
But I do

I feel the damage of you
Destroying all that is me
Forcing me to face up to what I really am

I don't think I could ever escape you
I don't think that I want to escape you
If I could, then I wouldn't keep running
If I could, then I know I'll stop running
But I can't, so I just keep running away
Keep running away
