Behind Me [Watts]

Everything that came around
That was creeping up without a sound
That was tap, tap, tappin’ on my door
That I’d answered once or twice before

Everything that brought me low
Has just seemed to up, up, up and go
The sun is really shining right ahead
She’s sticking with me cause that’s what she said

I’m leaving all that pain behind me
Dropped it off and thanked it kindly
Then snuck away and left it slyly
Now I say that pain’s behind me

But what’s that sneaking up
Silently
What’s that I can’t seem to shake
Violently
Will it go if I hold my breath
Quietly
What’s that sneaking up
Behind me

Everything that came around
Is still creeping without a sound
Still tap, tappin’ on my door
Should I answer like I did before

Everything that brought me low
Just seems to up, up, up and grow
My doubts sound with breeding dread
Can’t forget all she ever said

Thought it was all behind me
Found it yet again and hold it tightly
Don’t know if I’m daft entirely
Or if I should run from what’s behind me

And when I look into her eyes
I see its shape and size
Reflected there
Behind me
