Nightmare

All this time I thought I knew what I wanted and I thought it was you
But the more I learned you, the more we grew apart

But you keep coming back into my life destroying any hope I have of moving on
I don’t want you back – I may be lonely but I still have my pride

Yes I romanticize and fantasize but when will you realise you couldn’t change me
And all of the blatant lies that you disguised were so transparent I could see

CHORUS
Let me live my life without you at the back of my mind
Going over and over and over in my head
Let me erase all the memories
And put the nightmare to bed, put the nightmare to bed, put the nightmare to bed

I feel like I’m drowning and thoughts of you are holding me under
I try to gasp for air but the more and more I try the more and more I sink to the bottom

Who are you kidding?  Nobody changes however much you want them to
Your words are tainted with mistrust and deceit and I won’t go there again

I’ll learn to be alone, cope on my own but you still can’t admit you were wrong
And all that I have known that you disowned has helped me realise I am strong

CHORUS
Let me live my life without you at the back of my mind
Going over and over and over in my head
Let me erase all the memories
And put the nightmare to bed

Let me live my life without you at the back of my mind
Going over and over and over in my head
Let me erase all the memories
And put the nightmare to bed, put the nightmare to bed
Put the nightmare to bed, put the nightmare to bed
Put the nightmare to…
