From the recording Dreamin' Ghosts


I’m dreamin’ ghosts that walk the hallways in my brain
They speak in silly tongues of rage
Electric shadows tease the lines across the floor
And the words they fall upon the page
And in the bedrooms of our mind
we cast a thousand dreams aside
we painted too grim a picture
It fell well short of what’s outside
Sorted tales of lovers left to their own fate
they always rhyme like a song
an ocean flowing down and through your frozen heart
where I am weak and you are strong
And as the sun dips below the tide
All this folly brings to bear
a leaden weight that grows and hangs upon my back
your love leaves nothing left to spare
With you I seem to rise against the boring dark
It shudders deep within my bones
Together now we dive into the swirling blue
Disappear in froth and foam
And as we’re borne inside the tide
through maze on maze of murky deep
I whisper in your ear my only wish
Your only promise left to keep
(From the album Seven Years Now)
