Haunting, Haunted, Haunts

Album: Shape Shift With Me (2016)
  • Tonight I can't sleep because I'm haunted
    So I'm breaking spells of intention
    All I can see is the space in between
    The space where you're missing

    I once was drunk on you
    So very stoned, fully compelled
    Now, I'm not sure you ever were
    I once was drunk on you
    So very stoned, fully compelled
    So guided bound and willed
    When the bar dried up
    You were already gone
    Rooms that I once lived in
    Rooms that I've since left
    There's another life that I might have had
    I know the feeling well of longing
    For something that's lost
    I feel you like a phantom limb

    I once was drunk on you
    So very stoned, fully compelled
    Now, I'm not sure you ever were
    I once was drunk on you
    So very stoned, fully compelled
    So guided bound and willed
    When I sobered up
    You were already gone

    If this wine hasn't turned to vinegar there's enough to pour a drink
    But just one drink won't be enough
    To put myself to sleep

    I once was drunk on you
    So very stoned, fully compelled
    Now, I'm not sure you ever were
    I once was drunk on you
    So very stoned, fully compelled
    So guided bound and willed
    When the bar dried up
    When I sobered up
    You were already gone
    And I'm shit out of luck
