You're not the same yet,
I freeze as he touches my waist,
My mind race back to that summer day.
I disengage as he touches my thigh
My mind rush back to that cold hearted day

As a tear slip down my ice cold face
I think it's beyond believe,
He touches me the same
In different kind of ways.

I freeze as I see you in the hall,
I tense when they speak your name,
My mind is blurred hy visions of that day.
I stop in my tracks as your friends call your name,
My mind replays that day.

You're the reason for castle walls,
And rules written in pure gold.
And I wonder if I'll ever be free,
My mind is a prisoner, stuck in that day.
