Ghosts
lyrics- charles mansfield

Ghosts with lipstick and small shoes,
with buckles, straps not much to choose from
swimming sheets and trailing scents just underneath most every thought

And the buildings floating on the water and I am floating on the buildings;
and the ghosts are floating over me ,
as the boats leave their sea of foam, for a minute I feel free.

Floating powder gliding over wood floors with no sound
but never leaving, always hinting compromises we'll all be here....

And the buildings floating on the water and I am floating on the buildings;
and the ghosts are floating over me ,
as the boats leave their sea of foam, for a minute I feel free.

But as soon as the smoke leaves my lungs I breathe in what's always inside of me.

For all the lonely souls without a home a heart a page to write on
before the paper cuts and stinging sighs....yawns like yells, and laughs like cries.

Buildings floating on the water and I am floating on the buildings;
and the ghosts are floating over me ,
as the boats leave their sea of foam, for a minute I feel free.

But as soon as the smoke leaves my lungs I breathe in what's always inside of me.
