lyrics

Pale ghosts are dancing on my windowsill
I'm close to turning on the light
But as I walk the room, I hear a whippoorwill
I let them dance again tonight
If I didn't need to miss you, I could dig a deeper grave
I could press the earth down hard enough to keep the ghosts away
Pale ghosts are dancing on my windowsill
I watch stars flicker through their skin
In smoke and shadow they are wandering
To find their bodies once again
If I didn't need to miss you, I could dig a deeper grave
I could press the earth down hard enough to keep the ghosts away
Could I be strong enough to say goodbye again
And let the morning creep back in
If I didn't need to miss you, I could dig a deeper grave
I could press the earth down hard enough to keep the ghosts away
If I didn't have to miss you
