The Unwelcome Guest

If itīs you again
I just wonīt let you in
Unless...some friends!
To prop me up again...
No, I donīt think itīs you this time
I hear the bell ring. I rush to the door
I donīt know why

īCause all I get
Is the unwelcome guest
Following in my footsteps

Now in my mind
I leave you far behind
I turn my back
And cover up my tracks
I swim over the oceans, I almost drown
I walk for hours, I walk for months
I turn around...

All I get
Is the unwelcome guest
Following in my footsteps

And if I open the door, what will I find
A visitor Iīm waiting for or a friend of another kind
Someone I donīt like who just wonīt go away
Someone who stays the night, tomorrow and the next day

No, I donīt think itīs you this time
I hear the bell ring, I rush to the door
I donīt know why

īCause all I get
Is the unwelcome guest
Following in my footsteps

And in my best interests
The unwelcome guest
Never lets me rest
