I havent slept enough,,
Because I've missed your touch,,
Never thought that I,
Could miss someone this much,,

Thought I was a strong man..
Could handle things on my own.
But never before..
Have I felt so all alone..

Thought I could outrun you..
Start off in a new town..
But your memory follows me..
Your scent still lingers 'round..

You see I haven't slept enough,
Because I've missed your touch,
Ive always been a drifter..
Never thought I would miss someone this much.
But lord I need your touch,,

You see you cant outrun a memory..
It will follow where ever you go,,
And right now your memory,,
Is all i want to hold,,
