lyrics

In the morning I don’t owe you anything
In the quiet you can make no demands
These moments are waves of old innocence
That baptize these weakened hands

I am slowly, losing color
Gone by autumn, ghost of summer
Gone without saying goodbye

Fire in my lungs
The earth moves and I run
Miles away from half -wasted days
Too short to learn from

I am slowly, losing color
Gone by autumn, ghost of summer
Gone without saying goodbye

They said to pick the right poison
Well I can’t keep all of it down
The kids who took pills still look terribly ill
They say that they’re scared of themselves

I am slowly, losing color
Gone by autumn, ghost of summer
Gone without saying goodbye

Love, I miss you most
You’re my favorite ghost

(Lyrics by James McCurley)
