Obsession LyricsEdit


♪♫Obsession Lyrics♫♪

Do you hear this breath? It's an obsessive breath Can you feel this beat? It's an obsessive heartbeat Waiting to be joined with its obsession

I close my eyes But I can't sleep The thin membrane can't veil The branded picture of you The signs and signals show The traffic lights say go Again you baffle me Pretending not to see, oh Me

I broke into your room I broke down in my room Touched your belongings there And left a lock of my hair Another sign for you

You screamed into my face Get the hell out of my place Another sign for me? Can you forgive me? For not understanding your ways

You know sometimes You take it all too far Then I remember It's a game between you and me A divine test for us two It's all in my imagination Yes, they even say that our mission Is only My obsession

Do you hear this breath? It's an oppressive breath Suffocating in the poison Of your obsession Can you feel this beat? It's a possessive beat Your pulse stops in the claws Of your obsession
