lyrics

I know that I've made too many mistakes and it would come back one day to haunt me
In the form of a curse, or a plague on my house, or a fever that burns inside of me
But now I plainly see my days are tagged and numbered, crushed in your debris
When I go chasing love it's nothing more than you laughing back at me

Could have sworn we would have worked out once without this haunt weighing us down
But in a planned attack of the world versus me, you didn't want me around
I know the cycle and the way of things I should be far too used to now
I couldn't believe, no I couldn't see, I couldn't seem to find some higher ground

I loved you then
I should have said to you that I wanted you without a doubt of truth
I hope that you can find forgiveness
I know you are the one who keeps my fate for me
Under lock and key, please free the ghost of my regrets and finally leave me be
And finally leave me be

So waking life isn't waking life when you are much to tired to breathe
You wish to avoid the never-ending want to submit and finally sleep
I'm sure you'll think of something clever to say when I am gone
You laugh under your breath a bit, as they lower me in, oh now see what you've done

I loved you then
I should have said to you that I wanted you without a doubt of truth
I hope that you can find forgiveness
I know you are the one who keeps my fate for me
Under lock and key, please free the ghost of my regrets and finally leave me be
Finally leave me be
