Lyrics

Banquo

Written By: Eilis Phillips

BANQUO

i made the mistake, brought up Banquos ghost
now he lies at my feet lies at my feet
if i tell you where it hurts the most would you lie by my side
lie by my side?

baby, i been lying to ya, like i been lying to myself
for so long
lately i been looking round me, didn't realise that this was
how i felt,

But everybodys got a dirty secret be it love or violence love violence
everybody sees the ghost in the room but they stay silent they stay silent
i made the mistake brought up Banquos ghost now he lies at my feet he lies at my feet
if i tell you where it hurts the most would you lie by my side lie by my side

baby its like a burning match inside me and i cant just let it die out
i hope you understand me
darling when i woke up this morning, i knew that he was waiting, for me

Cant imagine life without you holding me back
turning every available blossom to black

baby i have to say im sorry, i knew him so long,
before i met you, now that he calls me i have to go…

in your eyes i saw Banquos ghost, standing behind me,standing behind me
if i tell you i loved you the most would you forgive me?
