Fight Away The Phantoms

It's about how you can have unexpected feelings about someone you never really took notice of before

It was nice to see you again, my forgotten friend
5 years on my perspective of you changed completely
A change of place, this scene has distorted before me
Feelings I can barely contain, I can only pretend
That nothing exists between us

Everything and anything that I can do
To fight away the phantoms would be welcome now
The night it torments me
But the morning comes too soon

It seems I’ve fallen for you now, my beautiful friend
I’ve fallen into a dangerous love, do you love me
And both of our worlds have changed completely
These feelings combust within me, I can no longer pretend
That nothing exists between us

Everything and anything that I can do
To fight away the phantoms would be welcome now
The night it torments me
But the morning comes too soon

She sometimes worries about the legacy of romance
Some nights she puts me away in trauma
Some nights she’s glad she took the chance
Every day she’s glad that she’s fallen

Everything and anything that I can do
To fight away the phantoms would be welcome now
The night it torments me
But the morning comes too soon

The End
