Forgotten promises keep me awake
for hours in this endless night
broken dreams and empty words
will never make it right.

Sweet fleeting memories
are all that I have left
of this love-filled hate
that consumes the girl within.

Bitter promises harbored inside
Is there no reprieve for me?
no escape from this ancient curse
that keeps coming again and again.

Haunting faces fill my dreams
faint voices whisper in my ear
phantom arms that held me close
but were they ever really there?

Stumbling footfalls carry me quick
from this nightmare I cannot shake
thorny paths I travel still
prick and scratch my bleeding heart.

Why does this thing enrapture me so
forever following just a step behind
waiting again for another chance
to rear its head - betrayal.
