Ghost - Emily Saliers
    There's a letter on the desktop that I dug out of a drawer

    The last truce we ever came to from our adolescent war
    And I start to feel the fever from the warm air through the screen
    You come regular like seasons, shadowing my dreams

    The Mississippi's mighty, but it starts in Minnesota
    At a place that you could walk across with five steps down
    And I guess that's how you started like a pinprick to my heart
    But at this point you rush right through me and I start to drown

    And there's not enough room in this world for my pain
    Signals cross and love gets lost and time passed makes it plain
    Of all my demon spirits I need you the most
    I'm in love with your ghost
    I'm in love with your ghost

    Dark and dangerous like a secret that gets whispered in a hush
    When I wake the things I dreamt about you last night make me blush
    When you kiss me like a lover, then you sting me like a viper
    I go follow to the river, play your memory like the piper

    And I feel it like a sickness, how this love is killing me
    But I'd walk into the fingers of your fire willingly
    And dance the edge of sanity, I've never been this close
    In love with your ghost
    Oo oo-oo ooooooooooooo oo-oo oooooo oo oooo
    Oo oo-oo ooooooooooooo oo-oo oooooo oo oooo

    Unknowing captor, you'll never know how much you
    Pierced my spirit, but I can't touch you
    Can you hear it, a cry to be free
    I'm forever under lock and key as you pass through me

    Now I see your face before me, I would launch a thousand ships
    To bring your heart back to my island as the sand beneath me slips
    As I burn up in your presence, and I know now how it feels
    To be weakened like Achilles, with you always at my heels

    And my bitter pill to swallow is the silence that I keep
    It poisons me, I can't swim free, the river is too deep
    Though I'm baptized by your touch, I am no worse at most
    In love with your ghost
    In love with your ghost  (shadowing my dreams)
    In love with your ghost  (ooooooooh)
    In love with your ghost  (ooooooooh)
