STILL HAUNT ME (In My Dreams)

Now that it´s been so long ago
Since we were so deeply in love,
I´ve come to take a different view
Of some things I thought I was above.
I know I was going too far
When I made you feel confined;
I wanted to possess you,
I wanted you to be mine;
Sure, I was playing it too rough,
Sure, I was playing it too rough.

Maybe I raised the stakes too high
When I tried to change your good old-fashioned ways.
You just barred me from the stage
I could have shared with you in one and hundred plays.
Wouldn´t I have pleased your daddy,
Was that why you´d keep me hid?
Or was I just too flighty,
And you got rid
Of too high and incalculable a risk,
Of too high and incalculable a risk?

Time has come to take a stand;
I invaded your sheltered life out of the blue.
When I was up to more than you would dare,
I might have asked too much of you.
At first everything seemed so easy,
And we took it all for real;
Then just one word for many
Turned it all into a dirty deal,
But how come you still haunt me in my dreams,
How come you still haunt me in my dreams?

It didn´t matter whatever time or place,
If we could be together, we didn´t care.
Blinded with love we failed to see
That we were on the road to despair.
For fear of getting thrown off balance
By the challenge of the new,
You walked out on me
Before I knew that you needed to,
For you´re rooted to the place where you come from,
You´re rooted to the place where you come from.

My memories of you I keep so dear;
I best remember our last sweet embrace.
Stealthy looks from beneath a knit-wear cap,
Natural beauty with natural grace.
I wish you´d cross my way again
And we could speak beyond all blame.
We were so close and familiar,
But now you may no longer be the same,
And I wouldn´t even recognize your face,
And I wouldn´t even recognize your face.
