Lyrics

Ghost

Written By: Jera Denny

I don’t know what it was
That came to me crying last night
Something small and gray and gold...
Somewhat darker than the light
That came from your old place
Only these seven days
Since I held you when you were dying that night
I couldn’t help but feeling then, now I know
You wouldn’t ever really go....
Away from your old place

I don’t know what it’s like
To be at once both here and not here
No longer what I was - - but then again
I’m not really here at all
When I look in your old place
Answering where I know
You’re supposed to be but you’re not
I can’t help feeling you, seeing you want to be...
Like we were in the old days

I don’t know what you want
If it was you that came to me crying last night
I know that all your life it was me
That gave you what you need
But you’re now in a new place
I cannot even see
And there’s nothing I could have done here last night
I just hope you hear me telling you I’m crying too
And go into the light
And remember your old place

Wait

Written By: Jera Denny

I’ve been waiting for you
Forever and a day
I have prayed for you too
I’m hoping that you know
How I’ve loved you
Though you say

“It’s a long way, you won’t make it today baby
Wait, no Rome was ever built in one day
Stay, all good things come to those who’re willing to wait
It’s the only way”

I’ve obeyed the wrong rule
Nowhere have I gone
I’m afraid I’ve been a fool
I’m ever trying so
Hard to move you
Still you say

“It’s a long way, you won’t make it today baby
Wait, no Rome was ever built in one day
Stay, all good things come to those who’re willing to wait
What more can I say?”

I have aged in my youth
Life is going on
Why evade the truth
We’re hanging by an arm
I can’t love you
If you go on this way
