I have this reoccurring dream
Where you make it hard for me to breathe
I gave you everything I could
I gave up everything I owned
And when you smile it's not for me
You offer little sympathy
Your grasp so far exceeds your reach
I wake up
This is not a dream

I almost can't believe
That you're the same person who can
Straight-faced with a smile
Tell me that you love me

Crawl, but I don't get too far
I know I should run
But I just keep running back
I know I should run
I know I should...[x2]

I have this reoccurring dream
Where you admit that you're not happy
I know that you will never leave
You're here just to torment me

Crawl, but I don't get too far
I know I should run
But I just keep running back
I know I should run
I know I should...[x2]

Tell me that you love me

I have a new dream
Everything is perfect
The sky is pink, yellow, green, blue and orange
And all the past has been forgotten
And we fell in love
And we fell in love
And we fell in love...
And I fell into your trap!

Crawl, but I don't get too far
I know I should run
But I just keep running back
I know I should run
I know I should...[x4]

I don't know how you don't choke
On every lie you've ever told to me
You kept me sick
You took it all
You kept me complacent
But not for long
