When will I be free?

Post by Ang » Sun Nov 19, 2017 12:41 am

When will I be free?

I thought I had put it behind me,
I thought I was finally free
Why are you back in my head?
Why are you haunting me?

I saved myself and made it stop
I was stronger than you thought
So why are you back in my head?
Why are you haunting me?

I found safety and love
Found someone who saw the real me
So why are you back in my head?
Why are you haunting me?

I chased away your shadows
Filled my life with light
So why are you back in my head?
Why are you haunting me?

I will bring back the light
I one day I will be free
