Thought Of You

In a way
I love you still today
I don't think of you if I can help it
But I think
I think I will today

When the thought of you returns
I can feel my heart grow lighter
I can feel my throat grow tighter
As my blood burns

And it maddens me again
The way that I felt then
When love ruled over me
The sea rolled over me
And I was fooled
Fooled by the hold
The hold you had over me

When the thought of you retreats
For you are not my ruler
I can feel my blood grow cooler
As my heart beats

In a way
It ought to do today
Not a thought of you if I can help it
But I thought
I thought of you today
