I thought I'd beaten you off once
I thought I was out of this trap once
I said I'd never be like this
I said I'd never stop wishing I was...

Somewhere else, someone to be
Not myself, to much of you in me
Somewhere else with someone new
Killing time but not with you

I'll never slice through like a sharp knife
Could have had money and a good live
Now I suffocate in my dreams
Sat in the back with the cold cold vision
That there's

Someone else, someone to be
Not myself, to much of you in me
Somewhere else with someone new
Killing time but not with you

Someone to believe in
Somewhere I could be tonight
But dreams are not that kind
The consequences hide

I never took the chance with a clean break
The chance that you get but you don't take
Far too weak to be like that
Far to stupid to be thinking that there's

Somewhere else, someone to be
Not myself, to much of you in me
Somewhere else with someone new
Killing time but not with you

Someone to believe in
Somewhere I could be tonight
But dreams are not that kind
The consequences hide

Somewhere else, someone to be
Not myself, to much of you in me
Somewhere else with someone new
Killing time but not with you

Someone to believe in
Somewhere I could be tonight
But dreams are not that kind
The consequences hide

    General CommentThis is about someone caught in an emotionally abusive relationship. They know the other person isn't treating them well, and they know it's unhealthy, and they know they should get out, but they just can't because they're so attached to the other person. They dream about being with someone they can believe in, someone they can count on, someone who will treat them the way they deserve, but they just can't break away from their emotionally abusive partner. So they dream of someone they can believe in, and they hope that somehow someday they will be strong enough to break away and find that person.
