lyrics

I knew a girl on the northern side
Cold as a coffin and half the size
With a flaring gaze of her amber eyes
She said I’m gonna make it out one day

I knew a boy in the Alaska wild
Heart of gold and a winsome smile
Days like these go on for miles
But I’m gonna make it out one day

Did you know I would fall?
Did you notice the devil in my ways?
You’re such an honest soul
You’re not alone in the smooth Virginia breeze
You bring me home again
My truest friend, without you where would I be?

I’ve tried for all my life
To lay this down in sacrifice
But sometimes it gets hard to see the light

I’ll pay the debts you owe
Lift you up when you get low
When you can’t seem to get it right

Did you know I would fall?
Did you notice the devil in my ways?
You’re such an honest soul
You’re not alone in the smooth Virginia breeze
You bring me home again
My truest friend, without you where would I be?


Love I’ve missed you most
You’re my favorite ghost.

(Lyrics by James McCurley)
