Earworm of the day (for Bob): "Ghost" - Indigo Girls

Ah, it was nice to revisit this song and revisit the pleasure of not being in love with my ghost. I once thought I would never have that.


There's a letter on the desktop that I dug out of a drawer
The last truce we ever came to from our adolescent war
And I start to feel the fever from the warm air through the screen
You come regular like seasons shadowing my dreams


And the Mississippi's mighty, but it starts in Minnesota
At a place that you could walk across with five steps down
And I guess that's how you started, like a pinprick to my heart
But at this point you rush right through me and I start to drown


And there's not enough room, in this world for my pain
Signals cross and love gets lost and time passed makes it plain
Of all my demon spirits, I need you the most
I'm in love with your ghost, I'm in love with your ghost


Dark and dangerous like a secret, it whispered in a hush
(Don't tell a soul)
When I wake the things I dreamed about you last night make me blush
(Don't tell a soul)
And you kiss me like a lover then you sting me like a viper
I go follow to the river play your memory like a piper

And I feel it like a sickness how this love is killing me
But I'd walk into the fingers of your fire willingly
And dance the edge of sanity, I've never been this close
In love with your ghost


Unknowing captor you never know how much you
Pierce my spirit but I can't touch you
Can you hear it, a cry to be free?
Oh I'm forever under lock and key as you pass through me


Now I see your face before me I would launch a thousand ships
To bring your heart back to my island as the sand beneath me slips
As I burn up in your presence and I know now how it feels
To be weakened like Achilles with you always at my heels


My bitter pill to swallow is the silence that I keep
It poisons me I can't swim free the river is too deep
Though I'm baptized by your touch I am no worse than most
In love with your ghost

You are shadowing my dreams
(In love with your ghost)
(In love with your ghost)
(In love with your ghost)
