Poem: Ghost

Original and similar lyrics
Ghost, Did you know sometimes it frightens me when you say my name and I can't see you will you ever learn to materialize before you speak impetuous boy, if that's what you really are how many centuries since you've climbed a balcony or do you do this every night with someone else you tell me that you never leave and I am almost afraid to believe it why is it me you've chosen to follow did you like the way I look when I am sleeping was my hair more fun to tangle are my dreams more entertaining do you laugh when I'm complaining that I'm all alone where were you when I searched the sea for a friend to talk to me in a year where will you be is it enough for you to steal into my mind filling up my page with music written in my hand you know I'll take the credit for I must have made you come to me somehow but please try to close the curtains when you leave at night or I'll have to find someone to stay and warm me will you always attend my midnight tea parties as long as I set your place if one day your sugar sits untouched will you have gone forever would you miss me in a thousand years when you will dry another's tears but you say you'll never leave me and I wonder if you'll have the decency to pass through my wall to the next room while I dress for dinner but when I'm stuck in conversation with stuffed shirts whose adoration hurts my ears, where are you then can't you cut in when I dance with other men it's too late not to interfere with my life you've already made me a most unsuitable wife for any man who wants to be the first his bride has slept with and you can't just fly into people's bedrooms then expect them to calmly wave goodbye you've changed the course of history and didn't even try where are you now standing behind me taking my hand come and remind me who you are have you traveled far are you made of stardust too are the angels after you tell me what I am to do but until then I'll save your side of the bed just come and sing me to sleep

In Time

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE "Crown of Creation"
Long time since I climbed down this mountain before Things I've seen here make me want to go running home Lean close put your lips next to my face Look further on past the surface Orange, blue, red green Are the colors of what I feel And my mind y'know it starts to reel in time To know your flesh layin' by my skin And I wonder whenever I'm in Warm, soft, nice now Are the word things of what I know And my body y'know it's so in time I see you at the same place that I play Ah darlin' tell me what can I say Dance, sing, sleep dream Is the music of what I feel Among the many things whenever you're near in time Come with me my friend Come on now and take my hand You can be my friend Soon be in another country

Lay My Burden Down

ALISON KRAUSS "Paper Airplane"
Gonna lay my burden down Lay my body in the ground Cold clay against my skin But I don't care at all Can't seem to find my piece of mind So with the earth I'll lay entwined Six feet underground My feet are warm and dry When I get to the other side I'll put your picture way up high But I'm not coming back to you It's just too far If I was cast off on the sea Would you come and look for me Or would you just let me sink Beneath the waves so blue What if I had learned to fly Fly all night till day drew night Perch down upon a branch and Scan the crowd for you When I touch my feet on the land I'll kiss your lips and take your hand But you know I'm not here to stay It's just too far Darling can't you hear me cry My bones are broke My tongue is tied The moon is swaying back and forth Against the navy sky Is all that I can see My body's trembling on my knees Just have a little mercy on me Run away and hide When I sleep the angels sing But I cannot hear a thing Eyes close Dreaming of the better days gone by When I wake the trumpets play And I'm standing at the gates Fall down and joy I know my race has just been won When I was young my mom would say Well life is hard, but that's OK If you can make it through the day It's not that far No, it's not that far

Two

THE ANTLERS "Hospice"
In the middle of the night I was sleeping sitting up, when a doctor came to tell me, "Enough is enough." He brought me out into the hall I could have sworn it was haunted, and told me something that I didn't know that I wanted to hear: That there was nothing that I could do to save you, the choirs gonna sing, and this thing is gonna kill you. Something in my throat made my next words shake, and something in the wires made the light bulbs break. There was glass inside my feet and raining down from the ceiling, it opened up the scars that had just finished healing. It tore apart the canyon running down your femur, I though that it was beautiful, it made me a believer. And as it opened I could hear you howling from your room, but I hid out in the hall until the hurricane blew. When I reappeared and tried to give you something for the pain you came to hating me again, and just sang your refrain: You had a new dream, it was more like a nightmare. You were just a little kid, and they cut your hair, then they stuck you in machines, you came so close to dying. They should have listened, they thought that you were lying. Daddy was an asshole, he fucked you up, build the gears in your head, now he greases them up. And no one paid attention when you just stopped eating. "Eighty seven pounds!" and this all bears repeating. Tell me when you think that we became so unhappy, wearing silver rings with nobody clapping. When we moved here together we were so disappointed, sleeping out of tune with our dreams disjointed. It killed me to see you getting always rejected, but I didn't mind the things you threw, the phones I deflected. I didn't mind you blaming me for your mistakes, I just held you in the door frame through all of the earthquakes. But you packed up your clothes in that bag every night. I would try to grab your ankles, what a pitiful sight. But after over a year, I stopped trying to stop you from stomping out that door, coming back like you always do. Well no one's gonna fix it for us, no one can. You say that no one's gonna listen, no one understands. So there's no open doors, and there's no way to get though, there's no other witnesses, just us two. There's two people living in one small room, from your two half-families tearing at you, two ways to tell the story, no one worries, two silver rings on our fingers in a hurry, two people talking inside your brain, two people believing that I'm the one to blame, two different voices coming out of your mouth, while I'm too cold to care and too sick to shout. You had a new dream, it was more like a nightmare. You were just a little kid, and they cut your hair, then they stuck you in machines, you came so close to dying. They should have listened, they thought that you were lying. Daddy was an asshole, he fucked you up, build the gears in your head, now he greases them up. And no one paid attention when you just stopped eating. "Eighty seven pounds!" and this all bears repeating.

What Might Have Been

DIAMOND RIO
Sure I think about you now and then, but it's been a long, long time. I've got a good life now, I've moved on, so when you cross my mind.... I try not to think about what might have been, Cause that was then, and we have taken different roads. We can't go back again, there's no use giving in, and there's no way to know, what might have been. We can sit and talk about this all night long, and wonder why we didn't last. Yes, they might be the best days we will ever know, but we'll have to leave them in the past. So try not to think about what might have been, Cause that was then, and we have taken different roads. We can't go back again, there's no use giving in, and there's no way to know, what might have been. The same old look in your eyes, it's a beautiful night, I'm so tempted to stay. But too much time has gone by, we should just say goodbye, and turn and walk away. I try not to think about what might have been, Cause that was then, and we have taken different roads. We can't go back again, there's no use giving in, and there's no way to know, what might have been. No, we'll never know.... What might have been.

Demonsion

Brainstorm (Metal) "Ambiguity"
A satanic dimension. Religious groups promise redemption in a new and different world. They tear you away from your family and friends and destroy your soul. There's no reason not to believe in yourself. So long ago, I think it's so far way, so many dreams gone by, but still on my way in different worlds I've been, searched through different times another perfect day I know, again I'll try, this time, I'll have no mercy, don't care who you are, I'll praise the lord I hold my head up to a burning star in fantasies my life makes it hard to complain the demon and the holy ghost teach me how to learn. If I see you next to never Day after day How can we stay together? If you turn me away Demons walk over glass from a thousand mirrors I saw my reflection stare me down Underground, there you'll find that your faith is your fear Dream to fly, reason why now we know it's why we're here Welcome to the third demonsion, now here I am, the innocent are trapped inside others far away in a land so litte hope remains alive I only pray the dreams I leave you will survive I see you now or never Day after day the tears are gone forever, If you turn me away
