Haunted Slave

How can it be
Someone like me
So happy and free
But don’t leave me be

Alone at last
Here comes the past

All that’s suppressed
Makes me depressed

Comes up in dreams
Then never leaves
Even the breeze

Gives me the chills

Don’t leave me be
I need to live free
Can’t feel this pain
All hurt no gain
