NO MORE GHOSTS


NO MORE GHOSTS

LETTING GO OF HER

MEMORIES I DON'T

NEED ANYMORE

FROM OCEANS OF HER

LAST WORDS TO ME

TO THE DAYS OF

WAITING

AND THE SINKING

FEELING OF WHAT

I KNEW AND WHAT

I COULD NOT STOP

I CAN'T FOREVER

BLAME MYSELF

FOR HER ILLNESS

OR HOW IT TORE

OUR FAMILY APART

ITS ALL GONE NOW

FINALLY I AM FREE

AND MOVE ON

AS I FIND WAYS

TO GIVE WHAT'S LEFT

OF HER HERE TO

GO OUT THE DOOR

STARTING OVER

WITH THE LIVING

AND LET THE DEAD

REST

TO THE NIGHT

WHERE STARS SHINED

AND FELL

AND BROUGHT

ME TO THE BREAKING

POINT

CARRYING ON WITH

HOPE THAT SOMEWHERE

DOWN THE LINE

THE PATH I CHOSE

TO FOLLOW

BEING OPPOSITE OF HERS

THAT IT WILL BRING

SOMETHING

DEEPER

TRUER

BETTER

HIGHER

LASTING

IN THE ARMS OF

A KINDRED SOUL

WHERE MY HEART

FOREVER LAYS

AT THE BOTTOM

OF THE OCEAN

NOW CLEANSED

OF GUILT

AND REGRET

OF WHICH I TRULY

HAD NO FAULT IN

BUT BLAMED MYSELF

ANYHOW

FOR IT ALL

FALLING TO PIECES

THERE JUST HAS TO

BE SOMEONE

OUT THERE

WILLING TO MAKE

IT ALL WORTH WHILE

AS THE PAST IS BURNED

AWAY

AND I STRIVE TO FIND

SOLACE IN THIS NOW

EVIDENT SILENCE

ITS TIME TO BE

FREE AND LOVE AGAIN

WITH NO MORE

FEAR OF THAT SCAR

SHE LEFT ON ME

FOR I WILL NOT EVER

LET IT TAKE ME

DOWN AGAIN

SO TO THE STARS

GUIDE ME TO A PLACE

I CAN AGAIN

CALL HOME.
