Ghosts

Intro:

 

He: Slowly, slowly I lifted my head

 

When you said that I could not stay

 

Lines shined where your tears had run

 

All my magic was gone

And the words wouldn’t come

There was nothing more I could say.

 

 

Cho:(His) So good-bye

I won’t burn you anymore

Y’cry when I say I still love you

So good-bye

I’ve been with someone else you know

A love without change doesn’t grow

Good-bye

 

 

She: I left you there in the hall

And ran to my bed where I lay

And cried that our life had gone wrong

For you’d finally said what I’d known all along

What I feared each Sunday you left me alone

Going somewhere too, ... too far away.

 

Cho:(Hers) So good-bye

You can’t burn me anymore

You were too afraid to try to love me

So good-bye

A love like mine would only scare

Away a ghost who wasn’t really there

So good-bye.

 

Both: Wind whispers flow

Through the empty house

Dust swirls from under the door

He: That day when I left you I wanted to stay

She: That day when you left me

I wish you had stayed

Both: But it’s gone, ... drifted away

And only the ghost of yesterday

Sighs forever, cries forever,

Dies forever, ... evermore.

 

Cho:(Theirs) Ahhhhhhhh-aaaaahhhhhh!

(Both sung at the same time)
