Hindsight

in my dreams you follow me
and I can’t get away from you
even when I try

like last night,
there you were when I turned my head
beckoning me into your car

and I am hopeless to resist you,
every single time I give in and then
wake up thanking god

this isn’t real, you are gone
this is just a dream you find me in
when I try so hard to wish you away

I thought I’d always love you
always want you whether in dreams
or in my arms

but hindsight is everything –
I would have ran from you long ago
if I’d known how you would haunt me
