Icehouse – My Obsession lyrics

Icehouse "My obsession" (Davies/Kretschmer)

I used to be the one who made you feel so safe and strong
I could always make it right when everything was going wrong
I don't know why it seems no different now I'm on my own
And I don't know what it is that scares me when I'm all alone
I can't believe that everyone I know would lie to me
When they all tell me that I'm not the man I used to be
Don't want to hear about the things that I already know
You've got to say it isn't so, oh no, it's the...
The ghost of you that gets me every time (my obsession)
Just won't let go until it brings me down (my obsession)
I try to hide it but there's only one (my obsession)
And my obsession is you
The little things you used to do and say (my obsession)
Break every moment of my night and day (my obsession)
Believe me darling oh you know it's true (my obsession)
And my obsession is you
Yeah, my friends all turn away
They tell me not to waste my time
They say they just don't understand
How anyone could be so blind
And there's one thing you can't change
Forget about her now you know she's gone
Hey boy, that girl is just no good
She's only gonna do you harm
So I watch the hours turn
Until I lose the last long ray of light
And I know I can't pretend
Those shadows won't come out tonight
I can't believe that everyone I know would lie to me
When they all tell me that I'm not the man I used to be
Don't want to hear about the things that I already know
You've got to say it isn't so, oh no, it's the...
The ghost of you that gets me every time (my obsession)
Just won't let go until it brings me down (my obsession)
I try to hide it but there's only one (my obsession)
And my obsession is you
The little things you used to do and say (my obsession)
Break every moment of my night and day (my obsession)
Believe me darling oh you know it's true (my obsession)
And my obsession is you
The ghost of you that gets me every time (my obsession)
Just won't let go until it brings me down (my obsession)
I try to hide it but there's only one (my obsession)
And my obsession is you (my obsession is you)
The little things you used to do and say (my obsession is you)
Break every moment of my night and day (my obsession is you)
Believe me darling oh you know it's true (my obsession is you)
And my obsession is you yeah, you yeah
The ghost of you that gets me every time (My obsession)
Just won't let go until it brings me down (My obsession)
I try to hide it but there's only one (My obsession)
And my obsession is you
