    Lyrics:

    The way we are is keeping me from loving you.
    I'm holding on but I can't get through to you.
    The way we are is keeping me from letting go of you.
    My mind is free, but my eyes won't see.

    So I try to drive it all away,
    Chase away these blinding lights, but they won't fade.
    And I try to sleep it off, but when I close my eyes at night
    I feel surrounded by foes I can't perceive.

    The battle rages on until the morning wakes
    And I'll try to make it through.
    But I grow tired of trying to find so many different ways to say the same thing
    over and over again

    So I try to drive it all away,
    Chase away these blinding lights, but they won't fade.
    And I try to sleep it off, but when I close my eyes at night
    I feel surrounded by the ghosts of my mistakes.

    Maybe somewhere down the road you will remember me
    And think of me like I think of you.
    By that time I hope that I can honestly say that I don't need this and I don't need you.
    But until then.

    I'll try to drive this all away
    Chase away these blinding lights, but they won't fade
    And I'll try to sleep it off but when I close my eyes at night
    I feel surrounded by the ghosts of my mistakes.

    Yes I'll try to drive this pain away
    Chase away this feeling in my chest, but it won't rest.
    And I'll try to sleep it off but when I close my eyes at night God knows it's only you I see,
    It's only you inside my dreams.

    'Cause it's only you (I'll try to make you stay)
    It's only you (I'll try to make you stay)
    It's only you (I'll try to make you stay)
    It's only you (I'll try to make you stay)
