"A Ghost" lyrics

A Ghost

Line by line we drew it up
Had our fill and threw it up
Wrote the will and tore it up
I can't even say why

All my past is shoring up
Beating on my door won't stop
Couldn't lie so I made it up
And I can't even say why
I can't even say why

And I wonder as I walk away
Did I ever love it all the way
Did I open up my heart
And say it like I mean it
From the end right to the start
From seeing to believing

Oh, but I saw a ghost
In the mirror coming near
A little close
For comfort tonight
Ooh, he said, "It's easier to be alive
Than hide under your pillow
While your life
Is passing you by"

One by one they carry us
Break our hearts and marry us
Dig us up and bury us
And I wish I could say why

All my past is sure enough
Beating on my door has stopped
Couldn't lie so I make it up
And I don't even know why
I don't even know why

And I wonder as I walk away
Did I ever love it all the way
Did I open up my heart
And say it like I mean it
From the end right to the start
From seeing to believing

Oh, but I saw a ghost
In the mirror coming near
A little close
For comfort tonight
Ooh, he said, "It's easier to be alive
Than hide under your pillow
While your life
Is passing you by"

So live your life
Don't waste your time
Oh, live your life
Don't waste your time

I saw a ghost
In the mirror coming nearer
I saw a ghost
In the mirror
In the mirror

Oh, I saw a ghost
In the mirror coming near
A little close
For comfort tonight
Ooh, he said, "It's easier to be alive
Than hide under your pillow
While your life
Is passing you by"
So live your life
