Ghosts

Original and similar lyrics
Why are you frightened - can't you see that it's you That ain't no ghost - it's a reflection of you Why do you turn away - an' keep it out of sight Oh - don't live up to your given roles There's more inside you that you won't show But you keep it hidden just like everyone You're scared to show you care - it'll make you vulnerable So you wear that ghost around you for disguise But there's no need just 'cos it's all we've known There's more inside you that you haven't shown So keep on moving, moving, moving your feet Keep on shuf-shuf-shuffling to this ghost dance beat Just keep on walking down never ending streets One day you'll walk right out of this life And then you'll wonder why you didn't try To spread some loving all around Old fashioned causes like that still stand Gotta rid this prejudice that ties you down How do you feel at the end of the day Just like you've walked over your own grave So why are you frightened - can't you see that it's you At the moment there's nothing - so there's nothing to lose Lift up your lonely heart and walk right on through

Moving On

ASA "Bed Of Stone"
I had to run away and hide Something happened in the middle Of the night I came inside without a sound Suddenly my life was turning upside down All that I could feel was pain And strangers came and took my soul away Like a deadly hurricane I know my life would never be the same [Chorus:] Where do you go when you're by yourself Who comes along when you cry for help I know I can't change the past But as the river keeps flowing I'll keep on moving on I'm hoping for a better life Praying that nobody's story Turns out like mine The only thing I know is fear Even those with good intentions disappear All that I could feel was pain And strangers came and took my soul away Like a deadly hurricane I know my life would never be the same [Chorus x2] The earth's been done My spirit is broken He gave me the reason He left me with questions Where do you go when you're by yourself Who comes along when you cry for help I know I can't change the past But as the river (As the river) I'll keep on going on [Chorus x2] I'll keep on moving on (Where do you go when you're by yourself Who comes along when you cry for help) I'll keep on moving on I'll keep on moving on

Ghost

ANDY MINEO "Uncomfortable"
What you even come around for? You ain't have my back even when I had yours We said we'll take the whole world over You couldn't even tell me what's wrong Still think about it though it's been so long Thought we'd be down forever, now you're gone I remember, I remember It wasn't many days that we didn't chill together We was hangin' in my dorm room, we would write them rhymes Then record 'em in my closet cause we was next to shine Even had our own handshake, fall into that hug And we was different colors, but we swore that we were blood And, uh, all of a sudden you deaded everyone I had to find out through the internet you had a son And when I text you won't hit me This music took me all around the world, you were s'posed to go with me But, uh, the thug changes and love changes And them best friends become strangers I knew what Nas said was true I just never thought it be about you But, um, people come, people go And when they leave it's like they took a piece of your soul It's sorta like a ghost [Hook:] I didn't know you could walk through walls I didn't know you could float I didn't know you could disappear I guess you were a ghost Ghost Ghost We used to be so close I pray I don't get used to this feelin' The closer you are, deeper the cuts, longer the healin' These feelings and insecurity, they circle I just walk around like ain't a soul on this earth that's hurtin' me I do this for protection When I feel rejected I just dead 'em first, man Somebody bring the hearse in My worst fear in life is that my wife would have the urge to leave Like everybody else start desertin' me I know we made vows, but I cannot believe when I see divorce rates You know why I got doubts Fear takin' control Seein' it, now I know To truly love a person, the bravest act of the soul I could either get my heart again, put it in the open Or lock it in a box where it never be broken But there it grows cold, lifeless and old Nobody could come close but it's safe Protected from the ghost [Hook:] I didn't know you could walk through walls I didn't know you could float I didn't know you could disappear I guess you were a ghost Ghost Ghost We used to be so close What you even come around for? What you even come around for? What you even come around for? (let it go, let it go, let it go) What you even come around for? You ain't have my back even when I had yours
