A Sweet Ghost

from by Archers Rise



I saw a ghost on the corner of Quarry Street
The memory of it all twitter-patted my heart beat
I still get kinda scared but I'm starting to find
That this ghost has no teeth so I no longer fear the bite

When this world tries to let me down
I lift my eyes and begin to sing this sound

I'm just staying alive, I'm just holding on
I'm just staying alive till I go go go home

Attempt again but the sting is so strong
I'm such a painful let down when I try to belong
So let's refuse to conform and let's renew our minds
I want to breathe in this world as a living sacrifice

I swear
I can hear
Your heartbeat
Clear from hear
