Ghost

21 Jan

he travels light, day by day, a few folded dollars and change,
he sleeps in empty parking lots, the parking spots he can rearrange

you’ve seen his face in washrooms, as you’re reaching for the light
he’s followed you for miles of darkness when drove all night

there’s a ghost out on the road
there’s a ghost out on the road
for all eternity I know
there’s a ghost out on the road

he sits with you in diners, when your hunger pulls you there
he dances on the street lamps he’s in the wind he’s in the air

he’s always there, the road’s his prison
when bridges are bare, you know who’s missing
you know who’s missing

he wont hurt you, trust me there is no need to be afraid
just make it home now, safely and think of the time you made
