Your Ghost Is Right Behind Me

lyrics

last night your picture crashed off the wall
and I picked up the broken pieces off the floor
since then every time I turn around
broken glass is back right where it was before

and I can hear your footsteps sound
and your shadow's there beside me
I can hear your footsteps sound
and your ghost is right behind me

tonight the night falls like a fear so dark
and once again I'm haunted by the ghost of what once was
but I can hear whispers and the sound of broken glass (mercy now), hm
all I can do is to sit here, waiting for the past

I can hear your footsteps sound
and your shadow's there beside me, oh yes it is
I can hear your footsteps sound, amen [?]
and your ghost is right behind me

and the day that breaks will find me in pieces (oh mercy now)
just like your shattered frame, there lies my broken heart - waiting for the dark, oh

and I can hear your footsteps sound
and your shadow's there beside me (baby)
and I can hear your footsteps sound, oh baby like I used to do
and your ghost is right behind me, mm...

and I can hear your footsteps sound, baby
and your shadow's there beside me, oh yeah
and I can hear your footsteps sound, baby, oh yes
and your ghost is right behind me
