I don't love you but I'm lost
Thinking of you and the ghosts
Of so many special moments
That passed so quickly at the time

And now, they come and track me down
And echo round and round and round
And time goes slowly or disappears completely
And I feel like I fade away, like drowning

I don't need you but it's so hard
To be without you, though you're not far away
I censor my emotions
And tell myself to bide my time

But every time you come around
You batter my defenses down
But so gently, like some sweet hypnosis
And the world just slips away, I'm drowning

It's dark, my heart is pounding
I'm sinking down into a pool of passion
There's laughter as I drown
Like so many lost before me
Damned by lust and gone to hell

And then I look into your eyes
And something melts, I shake inside
And cool water washes me all over
Washes me away and still I'm drowning
