Drinking With Ghosts

Turn off the lights so that maybe you can see me
When it’s dark, I don’t need to disappear.
I’ve been waiting so long just to see you here.
If I told you who I was, you wouldn’t believe.
All you hear is me scratching at the door
And my voice howling in the wind’s abyss.
I knew when I died you’d be the only one I’d miss.
I wanna feel like I did and you did before…

Before the fire and crash took me away,
Before I saw your tears fall on my grave.
Before that moss grew thick upon the stones,
Before you abandoned me, left me alone.

I am the ghost of your lover, living in the basement -
I sing to you every night.
I am that uneasy feeling in your heart every now and then,
That you just can’t seem to fight.
I know it might scare you, some of the things I do,
But I came back because I’m still in love with you.

While you were in be with somebody new,
I was downstairs, wishing I was someplace
Where you could see these tears fall down my face.
And into nowhere, I followed where the wind blew.
But I came back with false hope again and again
To see you drown your feelings with vodka and wine.
Part of me wished you’d just opt for the cyanide
So you could be with me and life could begin.

I guess it’s a good thing that you forgot about me.
I haven’t forgotten about you so far.
Someday, I hope you will open this door and find me,
But you haven’t come anywhere close so far.
Will you remember me if I look a bit too pale?
I’ve been wasting away in spirit in your basement jail,
Waiting for you to find me and remember
The way we were when we were together.

Fill the tumblers up again and again and again;
Shoot down the alcohol and drown your fears.
I’ll drink with you and maybe it’ll drown my tears.
And we’ll remember who we are and where we’ve been.
Sweat drips from your brow as you come closer to me -
The wine is strong tonight and it’s getting harder to continue.
You don’t know it now, but I’m right here with you.
Forty ounces and we’ll be together and we’ll both be free.

so, yeah, let me know what you think!
