Tell me why it's so hard to forget
That we're not together
Why can't I just seem to find piece of mind
Accept that it was all for the better
Just treat it like a dream
Try to put it to rest
Cos it's keeping me awake
And when I try to sleep
All is filled in my head
Is you're not here with me

You're just a nightmare, nightmare
Just won't go away
(When's it gonna be over?)
(Just can't take it no more)
It's like you're right there, right there
Somehow you lost your way
(Gotta keep you closer then I did before)
I'll let you haunt my dreams
Cos at least that means I'm with you
Girl you're the nightmare that I don't wanna go away
And if that's all I have left then I don't wanna forget

Keep waking up with in a cold sweat every night
But I'm not under the weather
Bags under my eyes cos I've been crying
Thought that we was forever
I see the surface but something keeps pulling me deeper
Guess I'm in over my head
I tried grabbing your hand but I can't reach it
Did I just take my last breath?

You're just a nightmare, nightmare
Just won't go away
(When's it gonna be over?)
(Just can't take it no more)
It's like you're right there, right there
Somehow you lost your way
(Gotta keep you closer then I did before)
I'll let you haunt my dreams
Cos at least that means I'm with you
Girl you're the nightmare that I don't wanna go away
And if that's all I have left then I don't wanna forget

You're just a nightmare, nightmare
Just won't go away
(When's it gonna be over?)
(Just can't take it no more)
It's like you're right there, right there
Somehow you lost your way
(Gotta keep you closer then I did before)
I'll let you haunt my dreams
Cos at least that means I'm with you
Girl you're the nightmare that I don't wanna go away
And if that's all I have left then I don't wanna forget
