Echoes

When you promise me happiness I hear the echo of his voice
just like I do when you tell me itís all my choice
and that you will be waiting for me to decide to be with you
I hear the echo of his voice and I donít know if you echo his personality too

And it scares me that you might be just like him
I loved him but I canít go through all that again
the price was too much for me to pay
and I donít ever want to end up in the same way

When you say that you will never be untrue I hear the echo of his words
your very way of saying it reminds me and it hurts
all the things he did to me that on one should ever do
I hear the echo of his words and I donít know if you echo his personality too

And it scares me that you might be just like him
I loved him but I canít go through all that again
the price was too much for me to pay
and I donít ever want to end up in the same way

When you tell me that you want my body and my soul I hear the echo of his mind
and I know I want a love of that same kind
but it nearly messed me up and that is also true
I hear the echo of his mind and I donít know if you echo his personality too

And it scares me that you might be just like him
I loved him but I canít go through all that again
the price was too much for me to pay
and I donít ever want to end up in the same way

When you tell me you want children I hear the echo of his thinking
once I wanted that with him and now my heart is sinking
it might still be alright but I havenít got a clue
I hear the echo of his thinking and I donít know if you echo his personality too

And it scares me that you might be just like him
I loved him but I canít go through all that again
the price was too much for me to pay
and I donít ever want to end up in the same way
