Ghost, I saw you there, I saw you there in the shadows.

Ghost, what brought me here?

What brought me here into the meadow?



Wanting me, haunting me, to come to your side.

Feeling your presence, there’s no place to hide.


Ghost, you linger on, You linger on - I can’t release you.

Ghost your fingers on, they tingle on me.




Ghost, you disappeared.

You left me here in these shadows.

Ghost, I have no fear.

So I’ll wait here in these shadows.




Oh, Ghost, I love you still.
