Ghost Ⓒ Mike Garbutt

I'm turning through the pages, trying to find some traces of my history in your land
Walking along the sea-shores, listening for echoes at every single sea-shell in the sand
Or I'm driving down the highways, getting ready to let go of memory of a place I once knew
Measuring the changes from a past that barely ages to a time that I'll be leaving you

Just a Ghost of the person that I want to be
Trapped in this body for eternity
Trying so hard to break free, its so hard to break free

I've got dreams for future, memories of the past, I even live in the moment sometimes
Even though my heart is broken, I keep on pushing, I've got a reason to survive
But there are times when I'm tired, times when I'm afraid, times when I just hope that I'll pull through
'Cos giving up on what I'm after is the hardest thing to do

I'm just searching for myself
I'm tired of trying to live my life like everybody else
I just want to see the world through my own eyes

I have traveled this great country and others beside it wondering who I am
I've lay down with young ladies, whispered in their ears, sometimes a man's a man
But nobody can see me, nobody can hear me, no one understands a word I say
Chained like a shadow, I gaze at a reflection at my life fading away

Just a Ghost of the person that I want to be
Trapped in this body for eternity
Trying so hard to break free its so hard to break free
Its so hard to break free, Its so hard to break free, Feel like the ghost of me
