Ghost

Lyrics and music by Cary Grace. © 2003 Cary Grace. All rights reserved.

--

Empty rooms, bare walls
All my words come back hollow
And the pain doesn’t even seem real
I’ll disappear in the dark
Here where no one can follow
Wrecked by rhymes
Wracked with wounds I can’t feel

And if by chance I meet
Someone I once knew
Who I thought was gone for good
From deep in his eyes
The reflection will rise
Of a ghost where I once stood

What was war now is done
Incubating a curse
At my broken glass face I will stare
But I don’t want to see
And the lies make it worse
I’d be honest
But truth isn’t fair

And if you held out your hand
I would laugh in your face
And you’d never suspect that I bleed
And you’d not see defeat
And you’d not see regret
I’ve erased all the signs you can read

Gypsy bells, shadows waltz
In the hallways of dread
All the windows are open, but still
Sometimes I’m unsure
If light comes in at all
But for all the charades of your will

And if by chance I meet
Someone I once knew
Who I thought was gone for good
From deep in his eyes
The reflection will rise
Of a ghost
