LIVING WITH A GHOST


LIVING WITH A GHOST

____________________

SITTING HERE

RESTLESS IN MY MIND

TO THE THINGS

OF MY PAST

WONDERING WHERE

THAT LIFE WENT

AND YET I KNOW

TO THIS DAY

ITS BEEN FOUR YEARS

SHE IS GONE

IN MAY IT WILL BE FIVE

YET STILL

I AM HAUNTED BY HER

THE THINGS SHE

LEFT BEHIND

THE THINGS SHE DID

THE THINGS SHE DOES NOW

ARE NOT MUCH

DIFFERENT

I DESERVE A LIFE

I SEE SHE STILL WANTS

TO HOLD ON TO ME

SHE IS LONG GONE

LET ME LIVE

YOUR GONE HUN

YOU BEEN GONE AWHILE

NOW

AM I TO SPEND THE

REST OF MY LIFE

ALONE

DO YOU THINK

THAT MAKES IT RIGHT

YOU LEFT ME

YOU TURNED THAT PAGE

AND WALKED AWAY

YOU TOOK YOUR LIFE

AND YOU HAUNT ME

IN THIS ONE

YOU WANT ME TO JOIN

YOU

REALIZE I WON'T GO

WITHOUT A FIGHT

YOU ARE NOT THE ONE

I WANT ANYMORE

YOUR DEAD AND GONE

SO LET ME GO

YOU WALK IN A WORLD

I CAN NOT FOLLOW

I WILL NOT FOLLOW

UNDERSTAND

DEAR I CARED FOR YOU

I SAID I LOVED YOU

THE NIGHT YOU CHOSE

TO LEAVE ME

FOREVER MORE

YOU NEED TO LET ME GO

STOP AND THINK

YOU CAN THROW THINGS

YOU CAN DESTROY STUFF

YOU CAN GET ANGRY

YOU CAN EVEN TRY

TO ATTACK ME AGAIN

BUT YOU WILL NOT

WIN THIS BATTLE

I AM A LIVING BEING

YOU ARE A GHOST

WHY DO YOU STILL

HAUNT ME

WHY DO YOU TAKE MY THINGS

YOU KNOW I NEED THEM

WHY DO YOU WANT ME

STILL HUN

YOU ARE LONG GONE

YOU DID THIS TO YOURSELF

SO PLEASE

STOP HAUNTING ME

LET ME GO

LET ME LIVE MY LIFE

WITH SOMEONE ELSE

DEAR WHY DO YOU

THROW THINGS AT ME

WHY DO YOU PICK THINGS UP

WHY DO YOU BREAK THINGS

WHY

I KNOW YOU ARE THERE

I KNOW I HEAR YOU

EVERY NOW AND THEN

IT CREEPS ME OUT

YOU KNOW THAT IT DOES

WHY DEAR

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME

NOW

YOU LEFT ME

YOU WALKED AWAY

YOU BLAMED ME

FOR SOMETHING I DIDN'T DO

I DIDN'T WANT TO LOSE

YOU OR THE KIDS

SO WHY DID YOU

GO AND DO ALL THAT

AND TAKE YOUR FATHER

WITH YOU

WHY DID YOU TRY

TO TAKE ME WITH YOU

WHY DID YOU TRY

TO TAKE YOUR ONLY FRIEND

WITH YOU

WE ARE FRIENDS NOW

BECAUSE OF YOU

YOU SHOULD BE GRATEFUL

THAT WE FOUND EACH OTHER

AS FRIENDS

THERE IS NO LOVE IN THE WAY

YOU CREATED WITH ME

REALIZE ITS NOT

EASY FOR ME TO LET GO

I TRIED ONCE A FEW YEARS

AGO

I THOUGHT I HAD FOUND

SOMEONE I LOVED VERY MUCH

AND HAD BEEN SEARCHING FOR

YET I REALIZE SHE DOESN'T

FEEL THE SAME FOR ME

ANYMORE

AND THERE IS NOTHING

I CAN DO ABOUT THAT

HELL SHE LEFT ME TOO

BUT YOU HUN

YOU ARE STILL HANGING IN

WHY DO YOU HAUNT ME

WHAT DID I DO TO YOU

TO HAUNT ME SO

DEAR JUST GO TO WHERE

YOU NEED TO GO

IF YOU NEED TO GO TO

THE LIGHT THEN GO

HUN DON'T HAUNT ME SO

I LOVE YOU

BUT YOUR LONG GONE

FROM THIS PHYSICAL PLANE

NOTHING I CAN DO

ABOUT THAT

STACY GO

JUST GO

PLEASE MY GHOST

JUST GO

LEAVE ME BE

LET IT END

MY DEAR

LET IT END
