Remembering a Ghost with a Prayer
words and music copyright DK Bridger 2008

You hear me talking. You know Iím a fool,
When beauty walks into my livingroom.
No matter why, itís too late I fear.
You made me fly, then I made you disappear.
Scratched out skies rejoice in this memory,

As the memory fades
Without a picture
Of someone I belonged to
Who slipped through my fingers
Like a dream,
Drifting away,
So still on the bed by your side,
Watching you sleep in light and shadow.

You are my best friend
If I never see you again,
Here is my love.
I knew you when you were a dove
On silver wings over the river,
Floating on wishes, hope and wonder
To build a love that wouldnít go under.
All I have is your memory.

And you hear me talking. You know Iím a fool,
When beauty walks into my livingroom.
No matter why, itís too late I fear.
You make me fly, then I make you disappear.
Go to sleep, the inner voice is singing.
Go ahead, weep the tears that loveís sweetest choices are bringing.
Your scratched out eyes are rejoicing in our memory.

The memory fades.
So do the pictures.
Everything weíre holding onto
Will slip through our fingers
Like a dream on an endless waterway,
Drifting away,
So still on the bed by your side,
Watching you sleep in the shadows.

You were my best friend.
If I never see you again,
Each wordís a tear, a prayer for peace
Your dreams came true, your love was released,
Your song rang over the thunder,
Bad mistakes, bad luck and blunders.
To build a love that wonít go under,
All we have is a memory.
