lyrics

A Ghost Like Me (written by Katie Haverly)

It would have been nice
It would have been nice
To talk until our lips were numb
Play songs, get really drunk
Just simple really
Two bruised souls getting back to feeling
Sorry I didn’t realize
She was the distance in your eyes

It would have been nice
It would have been nice
To float through our sleeping town
Hatching plans tryin to figure out
How to make everybody feel
Something that lasts and something real
Sorry I didn’t realize
These thoughts just never crossed your mind

A ghost like me recognizes one of her own
Even if you don’t
I know you can see through me
But still I put on a show
I know you’ll buy a ticket though
But I’ve just gotta let go
Watching her touching you
As I sing trying not to choke

It would have been nice
It would have been nice
To hover up above the ground
With our voices finding new sounds
Tattered specters in the night
Building churches in the moonlight
Sorry I didn’t realize
I live in dreams to avoid the light

A ghost like me recognizes one of her own
Even if you don’t
I know you can see through me
But still I put on a show
I know you’ll buy a ticket though
But I’ve just gotta let go
Watching her touching you
As I sing trying not to choke

Just simple really
Two bruised souls getting back to feeling
Sorry I didn’t realize
She was the distance in your eyes
