about

Memories are kind of like ghosts. They can haunt us then disappear. We may try to chase them away. We might even want some to come back once they've left us.

lyrics

GHOSTS
words and music by Rick Paul

Phantoms steal just out of sight
Slip into mists of time
Flickers of some distant flame
Dance across your mind
And you chase them away
Can't let yourself believe

Memories haunt your day-to-day
And will not let you go
Whispers of your left behinds
Chill you to the soul
So you chase them away
Ooh, oh, oh

There've been so many ghosts
So many ghosts
So many ghosts along the way

Yesterday was long ago
And nothing is the same
Shadows in the stormy night
Have taken you away
And they won't let you go
Oh, no, no

I've seen so many ghosts
So many ghosts
So many ghosts along the way

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Phantoms steal just out of sight
Slip into mists of time
Flickers of some distant flame
Dance across my mind
But they fade away
Even though I still believe

Memories lost along the way
I thought would never go
Whispers of my left behinds
That warmed me to my soul
But they've gone away
Oh, no, no

I miss the ghosts
I miss the ghosts
I miss those ghosts today

There've been so many ghosts
So many ghosts
So many ghosts along the way
