One Too Many Times

I've slept in your ghostly arms one time too many
It's become a habit, an addiction to dream
Waking is painful; you leave with the night
One too many times have I watched you go

I've turned to bitterness and spite since you left
The charm in my eyes returns only for you
A sickening secret snakes across my lips
One too many times have I felt its burn

I'll watch the moon tonight as I always have
Waiting once more for that seductive touch
Tonight is the last; you will break at my words
One too many times have I come back to you
