Wish to inform you as of tomorrow we're merely ghosts in the memory of shadow A distant whisper, a scent in the air, a passing train in the thoughts of a dead man May I remind you that people live here? We could sure use your help on this one “We're really sorry, there's just nothing we can do.”
I'm not familiar with this story. Will you remind me how it ends? I never heard its happy ending. Don't you tell me there isn't one They're inside now- someone's behind you. Close your eyes, child, no one's gonna hurt you. You're really sorry. I know there was nothing you could do.
And we don't have much longer- with the swing of a blade What's taken for granted will be taken away But when soon this is over and you've forgotten our names We'll come home to remind you of your greatest mistake
Call your dogs off, put your knives down. We don't now, nor ever, want to fight you If you're determined to do your worst, then you've gotta know that we never tried to stop you Just not like this- not in front of them- you wouldn't put a man down in front of his children? I need a moment with my son- just let me say goodbye
I'm not familiar with this story. You've gotta tell me how it ends! I never heard its happy ending, now you're telling me there isn't one? They're inside now- someone's behind you Close your eyes, child, mama won't leave you You're really sorry, I know, there was nothing you could do
I fell in love with the sound of their voices. The dead color their songs with the truth. To walk alone among the chorus of the haunted, to hear the stories that they've told from their youth To know the faces in the shadows and the darkness- the merely ghosts in the world beyond our view I fell in love with the sound of their voices. The dead color their songs with the truth.
Real love is hard to find and your love is real to me.
