'The Ghost Inside of Me'

Every prayer that I'm not praying and every promise I'm betraying

Every price that I am paying, is like a ghost inside of me

Every road I could be taking, every dream I am forsaking

Every heart that's out there breaking, is like a ghost inside of me

 

Look around, around, look around

Every time I turn around

I'm not who I ought to be

Down, down, it gets me down

Every time I look around

There is something haunting me

 

Every friend I am deserting and every danger I am flirting

Every word that ends up hurting, is like a ghost inside of me

Every heart I could be cheering and every love that I am fearing

Every cry I am not hearing, is like a ghost inside of me

 

Look around, around, look around

Every time I turn around

I'm not who I ought to be

Down, down, it gets me down

If every time I look around

There is something haunting me

 

Every tear that I'm not crying and every pain I am denying

Every lie I'm justifying, is like a ghost inside of me

Like a ghost inside of me

Like a ghost inside of me

Like a ghost inside of me

Like a ghost inside of me
