lyrics

Look who I’m running from;
Is he the same one I’ve been chasing after?
Afraid that he might catch me,
I’m scared that he might get away.

Who’d ever thought that I
Would fall for the one who’s haunting me?
Imagine my surprise to realize
I was the one following his lead.

He looks so good most of the time;
He is the fantasy that captivates my mind and leaves me
Dead from desire,
Burned by his fire,
Scared and wanting more.

Look who I’m running from;
Is he the same one I’ve been chasing after?

Why is the angel of light the only one who sings in the night?
Shadows cast of a nightmare’s reverie.
Dancing illusions out of a broken window above,
And in flies a mocking bird dressed like a dove.
