I see your image in the shadows of nightThoughts of you transcend time and spaceWondering where you are---staring at distant city lightsWanting you---but scared of the paceThrough shadows of night, I see your faceLife lies between past and present; it's rat raceI want to be always at your sideBut there's a memory I can't hideAnother enters my mindHis memory still feels realMemories that should have died by this timeDo I secretly hide a love I need to feel?My mind feels like a total wreckLonging to feel your kisses on my neckThen at the worst time; his image appearsTormenting me, frustration brings me to tearsMy heart torn between past and presentI need his memory to die and not come backYou are the man I love and care forI'll battle my demons, someday locking that door
