Turn my back to the door.
Feel so much better now.
Don't even try anymore, nothing left to lose
There's a voice that's in the air,
Saying don't look back no where
There's a voice that's always there

And I'll never be quite the same,
As I was before this
Part of you still remains,
Though it's out of focus.
You're just somewhere that I've been
And I won't go back again.
You're just somewhere that I've been.

I'm breathin' in, breathin' out
Ain't that what it's all about?
Living life crazy loud, like I have the right to.
No more words in my mouth,
Nothing left to figure out.
But I don't think I'll ever break through
The ghost of you

And I'll never be like I was,
The day I met you
To naive, yes I was.
Boy that's why I let you in.
Wear your memory like a stain,
Can't erase or numb the pain.
Here to stay with me forever.

I'm breathin' in, breathin' out
Ain't that what it's all about?
Living life crazy loud, like I have the right to.
No more words in my mouth,
Nothing left to figure out
But I don't think I'll ever break through,
The ghost of you.

One of these days I'll wake up from this,
Bad dream I'm dreaming.
One of these days I'll pray that I'll be
Over, over, over you.
One of these days I'll realize that,
I'm so tired of feeling confused.
But for now, there's a reason that you're still here in my heart.

I'm breathin' in, breathin' out
Ain't that what it's all about?
Living life crazy loud, like I have the right to.
No more words in my mouth,
Nothing left for me to doubt.
But I don't think I'll ever break through,
The ghost of you

Breathin' in, breathin' out
Breathin' in, breathin' out,
Like I have the right to.
No more words in my mouth,
Nothing left to figure out.
But I don't think I'll ever break through,
The ghost of you.

    Its that she still has feelings but the more she tries to forget about the whole thing she gets a numb or a pain that stays with her forever just like her ex he was her first love and she dosent knowif she made a mistake.

    Selena is trying to get rid of the memories of her and her ex-boyfriend, but it's to hard for her because he is still in her heart
