I Only Haunt

 
I Only Haunt

Late last night I packed my bags and left your place without even a note
well you'd had too much to drink last night and so the seams began to show
so I told you all the things that you should never ever ever want to know
and you told me that you love me so now it's time for me to go

The slightest hint of love and I'm gone
I've been through enough to know
that I can't give you what you want
I don't love, I only haunt

Your friends they tried to warn you that I wasn't being true
but you romanticized us like that dead boy you wear as a tattoo
and you were sure that you would crack me like the back you never had
but I would prove to be as bastioned as that bastard of a dad

The slightest hint of love and I'm gone
I've been through enough to know
that I can't give you what you want
I don't love, I only haunt

Well I left your town with laundry done and all my debts were paid
I was heading for mistakes out there that I had yet to make
and now the past is creeping up on me but I am not afraid
'cause I'm alone at last, lying in this ballad with an album for a grave

The slightest hint of love and I'm gone
I've been through enough to know
that I can't give you what you want
I don't love,
no I don't love...
and this ain't love... it's just a song.
