about

"Ghosts of Us" is a story about the ghosts that are created when people we love are no longer in our lives. There is a journey of disentanglement, and often there are attempts to reconnect, but the truth is they'll likely never be to you what they once were. Your memories of them become a phantom that lingers on, but sooner or later, you have to let go.

lyrics

We were kids in shells of men
A winter gone two years and ten
When, in your hands, you took my head
And I was shaking in your bed

And the words fall out like knives
And they pierce me like your eyes
As you held your gaze to mine
And you pulled me deep inside

And I am broken now
And you don’t know how
Because you took your touch
But left the ghosts of us

Years would come, we’d bide the time
Hoping someday we’d make it right
Across an ocean, you would call
Knowing that I can’t help but fall

And you’d beg me not to leave
For there’s a timeline we could weave
Where we’d meld our broken parts
And what I would give if we could go back to the start

Cause I am broken now
And you don’t know how
Because you took your touch
But left the ghosts of us
Oh, I am broken now
And you don’t know how
Because you took your touch
But left the ghosts of us

Ooh
The ghosts of us
Ooh
The ghosts of us

The ghosts of us
The ghosts of us

I’m letting you know
That I am letting you go
In your hands, I am home
But I’ve got to let you go
I am letting you know
I am letting you go
In your hands, I am home
But I’ve got to let you go
