Ghost in You

from Yellow Tin Box by EMERITO

/

lyrics

devils running out of breath for me
going to drown in my old sleep
not the men their fathers want to meet
this lonely rollercoaster’s giving us the creeps

but the ghost ain’t outside
where footsteps in the dark
that’s the ghost right here
don’t be alarmed

because it’s got you
gripped by fear
take it by the horns
and watch it disappear

twist a heel and we can’t go back
this blind alley has gotten us trapped
and mother’s knitting pearls for little girls hats
when daughters rocking clowns in literary spats

but the ghost ain’t outside
where footsteps in the dark
that’s the ghost right here
don’t be alarmed

because it’s got you
gripped by fear
take it by the horns
and watch it disappear

big shoe solutions to short stepped problems
never loose the noose on the bag and the cat
grandmothers sucking eggs till the earth is flat
just another theory for the tit for tat

but the ghost ain’t outside
where footsteps in the dark
that’s the ghost right here
don’t be alarmed

because it’s got you
gripped by fear
take it by the horns
and watch it disappear
