the ghost of you


Released: 2009 on 'London'



How I long to lose the ghost of you
Like the morning warms and leaves behind the dew
This man so blind
This man so ill
Out of his mind
He loves you still
Is there no place
You’d rather be
Than standing here
Just haunting me?


How I long to lose the ghost of you
Is it not enough what you have put me through?
Are there no graves
Better than this
More worthy of
Your phantom kiss?
Oh better ghosts
Than you we’ve had
Like Christmas past
And Hamlet’s dad


How I long to lose the ghost of you
How you haunt me still in everything I do
You must away
I must forget
Just leave me be
But oh not yet
Just one more smile
For good or ill
Haunt me awhile
I love you still
