Once Come To Say

Ehsan Sehgal

I remain unaware of that
To be aware is the pain
Thinking of you is my life
You are in my dreams
You are always in my thoughts
And I talk with myself
When the sorrow and the worry bites
I mostly suffer from sleepless nights
I can't stop thinking of you
I am not able to decide
What is good and what is right
You just for once come to say
I would wait for you
Or I would forget you
If you can't do this
Please then quit from my thoughts
To leave me alone forever
