THE GHOST

Every time my phone rings
Every call it’s true
I think it’s you
It’s not you
And every hour feels like a day
Staring out into space
I fear
You’ve disappeared

You don’t come through for me
What’s wrong baby?
On a bed of nails you make me wait
But lately I’ve been wondering
Was it real?
Was it just a dream?
I thought you were a man
You’re just a ghost

Your voice is ringing in my ears
Perfectly in time to the choir I hear
Of sirens wailing in the night
I see your face you’re smiling at me
When you lean in to kiss me
Your lips are bees stinging me

You don’t come through for me
What’s wrong baby?
And on a bed of nails you make me wait
But lately I’ve been wondering
Was it real?
Was it just a dream?
Cuz I can’t sleep at night with a ghost

You’re on my mind
In my head
Thorns and roses on a thread
But I won’t live my life with a ghost
