08. Ghost

Just Kids
by Mat Kearney



 

You took the best of me, best of me
that iíll ever know
Iím left with rest of me, rest of me
And I canít let go
Iím waiting for a train thatís not coming
Itís like a waterfalling in my head

Oh wonít you tell me why
I keep waiting up at night
Leaving on the lights
Like you never said goodbye
I hear you at the door
Footsteps on the floor
But youíre not here no more
What hurts the most
Is sleeping with your ghost

I still feel you holding me, holding me
But all the warm is gone
I still hear you calling me, calling me
Where I donít belong
How do you take the knife from your heart
When every beat still hurts the same

Oh wonít you tell me why
I keep waiting up at night
Leaving on the lights
Like you never said goodbye
I hear you at the door
Footsteps on the floor
But youíre not here no more
What hurts the most
Is sleeping with your ghost

When we had our baby girl I was scared to death
Doctor said darling you ready to push
Drove home like we stole the sun
Those kind of memories donít fade donít run
They stuck to the back of my mind
Hear you blowing in the trees at night
Iím still sleeping on my own side
Yeah they said youíd never be prepared for the worst ones
You took your bow, they dropped the curtains
No encore, just me on the floor
Waiting here for more

Oh wonít you tell me why
I keep waiting up at night
Leaving on the lights
Like you never said goodbye
I hear you at the door
Footsteps on the floor
But youíre not here no more
What hurts the most
Is sleeping with your ghost

Written by Mat Kearney, Jeff Sojka and Josh Zegan Produced by MDL and Tom Meredith
