He's A Ghost As Far As I Know

lyrics

Another November afternoon
Searching for an elusive
And unspeakable tune
Maybe I gave in to you too soon
And looked for the sun but
I found your room
Hanging outside your front door
Looking for the answer to what you swore
Was the last phone call I'd ever get before
You fell asleep in the silence
As I read my eyelids once more

So say that it's not your way
And outspoken token of my affectation
Has lead us to this day
I'll try to rise up to your eyes
But the one explanation for your salutation
Has translated as goodbye

Another November night
When I drink to the silence
Til dawn's early light
Maybe your would like to try
To crack my smile
To grin and lie
Choking on the last words that you said
I pick my battles carefully
And I keep my head
Above the waterline beside my bed
You'll never hear my voice again
Because my lungs are dead

So say that it's not your way
And outspoken token of my affectation
Has lead us to this day
I'll try to rise up to your eyes
But the one explanation for your salutation
Has translated as goodbye
Just say goodbye
Just say goodbye
Just say goodbye
