possession lyrics – billy gilman

one of my greatest fears is “it.”
i can’t touch “it,” but i can feel “it.”
it does not have a taste or smell,
but i can hear it in my spirit

[chorus:]
it is deep inside of me,
it makes me fear my memory
one day i’ll live peacefully,
without the fear of “it”

it is something i can’t see
it can never possess me
it always tries to take control
i can defeat it if i believe it

[repeat chorus]

it keeps running through my mind,
i have to fight it time and time
and time and time and time
and time again…

[repeat chorus]

the more i understand about it
the less my world revolves around it
then i can just live out my life
without the fear of “it.”
