I always tried to keep you near me
I always tried to make things work
Now that the dust has settled i see that I was just a jerk
At first I didn't understand
Your reason for leaving
Was it my over controlling demand
That left you pissed and screaming
Left your soul there bleeding
Left me on the floor pleading

I repelled you away
Just like bug spray
I shouldn't have been so hard
I shouldn't have made you stay

Over obsessive behavior
Left a bitter flavor on my tongue
I don't blame you for running
I don't blame you for running away

Maybe its someone else that you preffered
Someone unlike me
Someone thats not a possesive bastard
Someone who can see
Exactly what you need
I cried for so long
And I've tried for so long
I don't think that I can go on
But I need to fess up
That I'm just a mess up
And I'm the only one that was wrong

I repelled you away
Just like bug spray
I shouldn't have been so hard
I shouldn't have made you stay

Over obsessive behavior
Left a bitter flavor on my tongue
I don't blame you for running
I don't blame you for running away

Now you haunt my dreams
Now you haunt my nightmares
Nothings what it seems
No one really cares
All the times I stood up for you
Even when I knew you weren't right
All the hard times that we've been through
Have been shattered, breaks the light

I repelled you away
Just like bug spray
I shouldn't have been so hard
I shouldn't have made you stay

Over obsessive behavior
Left a bitter flavor on my tongue
I don't blame you for running
I don't blame you for running away

    General Comment"Now you haunt my dreams/Now you haunt my nightmares" Good song. There's always this tremendous feeling of regret and guilt after a break-up. This song expresses that perfectly. You are left wondering, what is it that I did that has made you feel this way? Once you think about it, you can't blame them, but you wonder what you could do to fix it. In the end, you can't fix it. It's over. It's done.
