Ghosts


If I squint my eyes
When I squint my eyes
It’s the time of day when the light begins to play
I look across the room
	and see her standing there
There is a girl that I never knew
She’s got a blue flowered dress 
Her hair hangs over her shoulder in a single plait
She’s looking at me
	looking at me with judgement in her eyes
She’s looking at me with judgement in her eyes
I’ve been seeing ghosts
Lurking in all my doorways
They all came out
They came out to play
I’ve been seeing ghosts
Hey, hey, hey, hey
I look through the haze
I’m cutting through the haze
In the shadows of the room
	in the shadows I see a man
He is someone, I’ve known him forever
He’s got his hat perched on the top of his head
He is standing so close, he is standing too close
I feel his disappointment 
I know he’s disappointed but he wants me to go on
I’m dancing while I play
I’m dancing while I play
I’ve been seeing ghosts 
Lurking in all my doorways
They all came out
They came out to play
I’ve been seeing ghosts
Hey, hey, hey, hey
