lyrics

Ghosts are people just like you and me
They do the dishes and they watch TV
They call their mothers but it's never often enough
Ghosts are people just like all of us
They do the crossword when they're waiting for the bus
And when they cross their fingers, it means good luck

Not that you were going to need it
But maybe it would bear repeating
You want to call a dead man's bluff
But you never were that tough

We met on the run
Thought I might be the one you're running towards
The EVP your heart records

I want you to be here with me
To taste and touch and smell and see
I know you can't feel my skin
But we'll never be this close again

Ghosts have feelings just like everyone else
It's never easy to ask for someone's help
When it's the kind of something you want to keep to yourself

It's already begun
And I know you're the one I'm running towards
There's just one thing more

I want you to be here with me
To taste and touch and smell and see
I know you can't feel my skin
But we'll never be this close again

Ghosts are people just like me and you
They finish the laundry, then they wonder what to do
And when they figure it out
They almost never follow through

I want you to be here with me
To taste and touch and smell and see
I know you can't feel my skin
But we'll never be this close again

about

Bird Ate My Donut Chicago

With big guitars, and keyboards strangely reminiscent of video games, this Chicago foursome consistently brings the rock, as in rock music, not to be confused with Dwayne Johnson. Cause that would be weird.
