Reminds me of you...
And no matter what I try to do,
I just can't seem to take my mind off of you.
I could be anywhere at all,
doing anything in the world,
as far away from you
as I could possibly bear to be,
and you would still manage to find your way
back into my mind.
And there is nothing I could do to stop you,
nothing I would do to stop you,
nothing I will do to stop you,
breaking your way back in to my head,
because you're the only thing I ever want to think about.
Whether I really am alone,
or whether I'm with others.
Whenever I'm with anyone but you,
I simply feel empty,
I feel uncomfortable,
as if there's a piece of me missing.
Imagine if you suddenly lost an arm,
suddenly lost a leg,
that's not the kind of thing that goes without noticing,
not the kind of thing you'd try not to notice.
So why do I try so hard not to think of you?
It's not that I don't want to think of you,
I never want to stop thinking about you.
It's that I think of you too much for my own good,
you're on my mind every second of the day,
every time I should be concentrating on other things,
I'm concentrating on the thought of you,
and there's nothing I would do to change it.
But we're not the only people in the world.
Sometimes it might feel like we are,
those split seconds of perfection,
when nothing else matters.
And sometimes I wish that we were,
that everything else would just...
and leave you here with me.
But I can't expect too much of the world can I.
I already have you,
and asking for anything more is just pushing my luck.
So those times when you are away from me
Those hours which feel like days.
Those days which feel like weeks.
...I just try to think of something else.
and I try and get on with what I have to do.
But you see,
as much as it might sound like I'm trying to stop,
trying to block out these thoughts of you.
I'm really not making it any easier for myself either,
I'm not really trying my hardest,
never pushing you out of my thoughts entirely.
And to be honest,
I don't ever intend to.
I'm just going to keep on thinking of you,
waiting for the next time I'll see you,
wishing it was sooner,
always wishing it was sooner.
And when you're finally back in my arms again,
after what feels like forever.
It's like you never left me,
I'm whole again.
...don't ever leave me
I don't want to ever let go of you...
But of course I have to,
nothing ever lasts forever does it?
So when I do finally have to let you go,
when our time together comes to a close,
our all too short time together.
The only thing that makes it possible,
the only thing that lets me leave you.
Is knowing that I will see you again,
Because I have to see you again...
Because no matter what anyone else thinks,
you're the real reason I keep on smiling.
And you're the reason I'm always thinking,
the reason I never seem to get anything done when I'm meant to.
You're the reason I'm always so far away,
lost inside my thoughts of you...
You're my beautiful distraction.
