Ghost Requiem

Delerium 2016

You were once a
strange addiction
Hit and run much
greater than fiction
Thought I buried you

Beyond matter beyond time
I believe that your are mine
How many times before
Have you walked
through my door
Just to leave me once more

The ghost that feeds
on your heart
has won I must
stop loving you
That thief has taken
your soul and run
I must stop loving you

This lifetime

Was it Daddy's cruel
distracted shadow
Or Mama's quiet remorse
Lead you on this
bramble path you follow
Made you bet on
the wrong horse

The ghost that feeds on
your heart has won Can
I stop loving you
That thief has stolen
your soul and run
I must stop loving you

Yes here we are
It's a force we
can't conceal
A magnet star
Being pulled by
fortune's wheel

You set a match my house
burned down
Inside your arms
I gladly drown
I was alive again
You were my oxygen

The ghost that feeds
on your heart has won
I must stop loving you
That thief has stolen
your soul and run
Can I stop loving you

I must stop loving you if
It's the last thing that I do at this time
Can I stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I must stop loving you

Maybe next time
we'll get it right
