Echoes of past dialogue
Shadowed by a past lover
Your presence continues to follow my emotions
Memories of the past won’t let me enjoy the present
How can it be any different

I get what I want but It’s never enough
So I chase you around through my life’s playground
And you seem to be calm but inside you are raging
Bottled emotions, unsatisfied lust
Unfulfilled fantasies stuck in traffic

You had me, don’t need me
long to deceive me
So the past becomes the present
And the present the past
Even in my shower you hunt me\
Pouring throughout me

And why kiss lips if not the most perfect
And why hold hands if not the warmest
Why go through life without letting you know
Our past consumes our love
I need not be near to understand
I get what you don’t want me to know

And when they hold me I feel your grip
Where they loved me I’ve only been once or twice
Don’t really care for attention if not that of your eyes

So If you don’t care than I’m not flaunting
No need for a spotlight if you’re not looking
Can our love make it through
The affairs, the abuse
Then let the dreams we conceived breath
You’re killing me
In dreams of the past in present disguise

I reach for your hands
Cling to your smile
And wish for a present with you in my sight
