My Ghost

She said “you’re a real Romeo aren’t you babe”

I said “maybe that’s true”

I just wanted to see the sunrise darling through your eyes

So I could see me staring back at you

But it’s never that easy

Everybody’s got a ghost that they will hold on to

And I guess I just wanted my ghost to be you

I could stay up all night just to watch you breath

She said, “darling it’s alright, look maybe you should leave”

So I wandered home alone

In the light of the morning sun I thought I’d found someone

But she did not come through

Oh I wanted ‘someone’ to be you

I see her dance across the room

I see her face up in the moon

I see her standing at the bar

I see her face up past the stars

I see her shadow on the stairs but when I turn she’s not there

No she’s not there

She said “you’re a real Romeo aren’t you babe”

I said “oh honey I’m not sure”

I just wanted to be that ‘someone’ I thought I could be that ‘someone’ that you were waiting for

But it isn’t ever that easy because everyone’s got a ghost that they will hold on to

And I, oh I wanted my ghost to be you

Oh I, I wanted my ghost to be you
