Sweet Vanilla

Sometimes I wonder if I pass through your mind at night
And that's why you haunt my sweetest dreams all night
What it takes to drive a man insane
Sweet vanilla

You weren't the first to leave me desolate
I can only pray you'll be the last
Because I'm getting tired of the paranoia
And constant fear

How can you all expect me to trust you
When every time I do you betray me
Trust is a luxury I can't afford
When I know all you want is to break me

How I wish to get back to basics
Breathe in the sweet vanilla air
Love without fear
And trust without doubt

But the time for that has come and gone
Now my fear's become my God
As I beg for your taste once again
Sweet vanilla
