HAUNT ME

3. HAUNT ME
music and lyrics by lauren nicole clare

my eyes bleed
in places that you can’t see
cause behind them is the tell-tale heart
you’ve broken, the kindness you’ve choked
and inside me lie stories untold and i see
that you’re just reaching your punch line
summoning your roses
to dry my feet.

and either way, you’ve given me
something to sing about
from my book of things
that haunt me
and either way, neither here or there
ever comes and what i feel’s
never strong.

so haunt me,
taunt me,
haunt me.

in my dreams
i’m incapable of death and dyin’
never endin’.
does pain go on forever?
bleed deeper than its rescue?
does it bleat, slaughtered?
or is it hushed by fear and complexes?
does it keep time or forget which way it’s come?

and either way, you’ve given me
something to sing about
from my book of things
that haunt me
and either way, neither here or there
ever comes and what i feel’s
never strong. (x2)

and do you see now
that my mind is numb
and my love is empty?
or haven’t you heard
that i’m leavin’ you?
so no, don’t come get me.
i’m runnin’ far away
so don’t speak now
you had your chances
and now that i’m through with you
i just don’t care if you don’t get me.
scat…
